Barcode Software -- "emailAddress" barcode ?

Does anyone have a way to make
emailAddress@anyWhere.com into a
barcode (i.e. Code39, etc) ?

Below steps work, but not for email addresses
  1. download http://www.barcodesinc.com/free-barcode-font
  2. open EXCEL
  3. change font to "Free 3 of 9"
  4. enter *ABC123*
  5. barcode appears

I am willing to use Microsoft Visual Studio, Crystal Reports, etc if needed.

Does the barcode font have the @ character?

Try using the Free 3 of 9 Extended font.
Available here

Go to the site http://www.qrstuff.com/  and on the left side selet 'Email Address'. That QR image will be generated for your desired e-mail address.

http://www.barcodesinc.com/free-barcode-font was on my original post, but cannot do @

My barcode scanners are regular, non-QR scanners and I don't have 50+ phones to do this.

Any other ideas to make a regular non-QR barcode with an email address, including the @ sign ?
DId you use the EXTENDED font?
It works with my system

If this is just for a temporary purpose, download Wasp Labeler +2D free trial version. I've used this software and it works great.
