    Do you really mean over 2 million email addresses? Or do you mean 220,000 email addresses?

    Not seen that selection method before - so I tried it. Moved the cursor to where I wanted the selection to start, clicked edit begin/end select, then moved the cursor to the line where I wanted to end the selection (line 1000 for my example), clicked begin/end select again and it highlighted that selection as I would expect. So is that what you're doing?

    However, to do what you appear to be wanting to do, I would use Excel or Access (though I would have to know how your data is formatted).
