I have a query that produces a list of email addresses. Scattered throughout are erroneous empty spaces, such as myemailaddress @someserver.com. I need a query that takes the original list and spits the list out again but with no empty spaces in the address list. I'm a novice, so please be as detailed as possible. Thank you.

>erroneous empty spaces
coming from user input?
in which case, the user input should be secured, first, that such entries are not possible any longer.

after that, you may want to remove the spaces, knowing that extended email address like:
[guy hengel] guy.hengel@somedomain.com
would be a perfectly valid email address ...

select replace(your_email_field, ' ', '' ) from yourtable
