Default Automated text typing?

Greetings, everyone! I just bought an Eris last week and, so far, I love it.

Does anyone know of an app that will automatically type a specified string of text? My email address is rather long and since this is used as the login for just about everything, itís tedious to type with an on-screen keyboard. On my Mac, I use QuicKeys to set short key combinations that will type various things like addresses, phone numbers, emails, etc. that I use all the time. Is there an equivalent in the Android world?

Many thanks in advance and best regards. JP

Type it out with the 'ABC' function in something (any text or internet situation) and when the full email address is typed out, wait a second, and it will be orange, above your keypad.

Tap the orange email@email.com whatever it is. That will add it to your dictionary. If you haven't messed with your Touch Input settings too much, you probably have word prediction turned on.

For me, I type the first few letters of my e-mail address, then the word suggestions above my keypad already have my email address in it.

Firekeys would work great too, this is just how I do it.
