Step Two: Every time the user adds an email address, read the existing
cookie, concate a ";" at the end of the string, then add the new email
address.  Now your cookie called email has multiple email addresses,
seperated by a semicolon.

For this you will read the cookie, split it into an array, then use a loop
to write the option values of the select box.

<air script>
splitEmail = split(request.cookie("email"),";")

<select name="emailAddresses">

for x = 0 to ubound(splitEmail)
	response.write "<option value=""" & splitEmail(x) & """>" &


</air script>
