Can I set up a 'Hotkey' to insert text ?

I frequently need to enter the same information on a variety of documents, web pages etc and I wondered if there was any way I could assign a 'hotkey' that will enter the data for me, for example pressing 'Shift + E' will produce a pre-determined email address.

Any advice would be much appreciated, thanks

Something like this click here might fit the bill, or something here click here under `Keyboard freeware utilities`

Are you using Word?

If so one option is to use autotext. This is found in Word 2003 under Autocorrect Options then slect the Autotext Tab. You can then type in each frequently used text. When you start typing the text Word will prompt for the remainder which you can select by pressing Return or using ESC to opt out.
