Andy had "Jones -at- 34 -dot- 15" in a cell and didn't want Excel to treat it as an
e-mail address.

If you precede the text in the cell with an apostrophe ('Jones -at- 34 -dot- 15)
then the apostrophe isn't displayed and the text isn't treated as an
e-mail address. Of course, this assumes that you're just using the cell
for storing text, and that its contents aren't being used in any
formulas or calculations. (If you are, you can probably work around the
apostrophe, but right off the bat it might appear to flummox things.)
