Full email addresses as a predictions
Full email addresses should always pop up as a prediction option. Currently the first part of an email pops up, the "@", then the last part, with spaces between each part so you must go back and delete the spaces. It would be far better if i could simply select the full email from the predictions bar and be done with it.
We’ve rolled out full email prediction support with the latest version of SwiftKey X and SwiftKey Tablet X.

How do we turn it on? It's not working on my version.
Also does not work for me. Before I saw this, I posted it as a bug at http://support.swiftkey.net/forums/116693-2-bug-reports/suggestions/3731771-entry-of-email-addresses
If the status of this is changed from Completed, you could merge the threads.

Does not work for me. The period is treated as a full stop
This doesn't work for me either, and it is a big letdown. Use on both tablets and phone.

Echoing the last comment... email addresses with first.last name are very hard to do... doable but a pain because it assumes the dot is a period.

This is not working.
My email foo.bar@fqdn ends up as Foo. Bar@fqdn
Daniel Barber commented
It does remember them. Close this idea.
Actually it still doesn't work in SwiftKey 3 for addresses that contain a dash. Eg firstname.lastname@example.org becomes me@my - domain.com So incredibly infuriating!

it does remember email addresses. Here's a suggestion. Every time you know you're going to leave your phone or before you go to sleep. Go into your settings and have swiftkey learn your words and sentence structure.

the prediction of my email address does not work in an email address field but in a text field. How do I fix this?
Eddie Mattison commented
p.s. OR if you could "associate" this program with Word (the word processing program) or a similar program to process word documents easier to type, I'll bet you you would make ANOTHER million! :-)

This is great but the space afterwards makes it useless for any fields an email address is submitted to. Most websites reject it. Please fix.
I actually don't mind if it's broken up; it'd be hard to read entire email addresses in the prediction areas once they get to a certain length. This would be solved entirely if there weren't spaces around the @ symbol.

Yeaa I wanted this feature so badly. Saw it working on the beta version! Awesome! 1 thing I dislike is the automatically added space. Better would be to not enter spaces automatically after choosing a prediction, untill you start to type or put a prediction.
I tried all the suggestions and like Tim said, it still inserts the spaces on mine. Does this happen on the "paid" version??

I added an idea that would fit into this where SK X could have user defined shortcut section, This idea would answer this topic as well as several others.

The same thing happened to me today. In my opinion this is a bug. I don't think that the concept of Swiftkey is about users having to use workarounds.
Try marking the address from the beginning to the end (using the arrow keys) and then save the whole thing.
@Tim Once you put your email address in all together the first time, it should remember it. Don't use the prediction the first time, manually put the whole thing in. From then on it should bring it up in predictions.
I used to have this problem but the beta has fixed this for me too. Evo 4G, not rooted.
