She typed [EMAIL="'@'"]'@'[/EMAIL] then friend name without a space with nothing at the end...it didnt work!! Do we need a [EMAIL="'@'"]'@'[/EMAIL] at the end of the name as well?! With or without spaces???

no spaces, when you type @ and start typing the friends name a pop up box should appear with all your friends names so that you can select from there instead of typing out the full name
