I'm worked on this function for a long time and have been adding features that I've found useful in many scripts and auto-enter fields.

Although it is working great I would appreciate any feedback or suggestions on how to improve it.

Is there a dependency to ValidEmail()? Where can I get that?

My apologies for not uploading ValidEmail(), that is used in this function. It is now uploaded.
