Just search for the @ symbol, and change it to something else.
Although a GREP that covered everything between the @ and the next .
and wiped it out entirely would probably be better. This expression
will work, I think with all email addresses that don't have hyphenated
domains: @[[:alnum:]]+.[[:alnum:]]{1,4} Now, what to replace it
with... maybe "@(munged)" or something so people know that something
was removed.

I'm no GREP guru. I just use NisusWriter Pro's PowerFind, and convert
that to a regular expression. Gotta love Nisus. ;-)
