    Zero: you're looking at edge cases thougn surely?
    If we match [\s^]@(\w+) then it won't match tom@smoothwall.net or BETT @ Olympia, but would match @ZeroHour. We don't *really* need to warn the handful of non-js-users that this is a special metacharacter do we?

    shinobi:
    That's similar to my suggestion involving being able to "@" groups - likes it I does.

    @tom_newton: test

    Yeh its not case sensitive. I will think about smoothwall but initially the simplest way would be for me to make you a dummy account to a mail list.

    Grah, semicolon vs. colon oddity, it is odd that it alters it like that.

    Distribution list would be fun, perhaps once the support forum goes live?
