Dear Experts

I have an Access 2010 database I use to manage subscriptions to a newsletter.  

I'm using the code below to unsubscribe people.  But one or two people get missed because they were originally subscribed under a different email address (for example joebloggs@googlemail.com vs joebloggs@gmail.com).

So I need to be able to put in a quick check in the code to see if that email address is actually in the table, if the email address can be found then I need a message box to pop up.

Private Sub Remove_Click()

' ********* Check Bit  *********
If Len(Me!RemoveEmail & "") = 0 Then
       MsgBox "Please enter the email address of the person you wish to remove", vbExclamation, "Warning !"
        Cancel = True
        Exit Sub
    End If

' ********* Confirm Bit  *********

If MsgBox("Are you sure you wish to remove " & Me!RemoveEmail & " ?", vbQuestion + vbYesNo, "Warning !") = vbNo Then
Me.RemoveEmail = ""
Exit Sub


' ********* Remove Bit  *********

Dim StrRemove As String
StrRemove = "'" & Me.RemoveEmail & "'"
CurrentProject.Connection.Execute "UPDATE [WeeklyMembers] SET [WeeklyMembers].[Removed] = -1 WHERE [WeeklyMembers].[Email] = " & StrRemove
CurrentProject.Connection.Execute "UPDATE [WeeklyMembers] SET [WeeklyMembers].[Unsubscribed Date] = #" & Now() & "# WHERE [WeeklyMembers].[Email] = " & StrRemove
MsgBox (Me.RemoveEmail & " has been removed"), , "Removed"
Me.RemoveEmail = ""
End If
End Sub
