Hello, and thank you for taking the time to look at this question (my first one). I have a Y-RCP140 Cordless Desktop Wave keyboard and I'm using the Logitech software (SetPoint Control Center version 6.32.7: Driver Version 5.33.14). My pc is running Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit if that makes a difference. My question comes from the fact that I am a pretty slow typist, and I get sick of entering my e-mail address for what feels like 10 billion times a day. Is there a way to program a function key (or some other key / key combo) to enter it automatically? Any help would be appreciated!

My experience is that you can't do much fancy stuff with keyboard configuration.
If you are entering an email address into a browser, then most browsers will remember the details and will offer to fill them in.
For more general uses like this, I use Macro Express to set up short keyboard combinations to type in "boilerplate" text.
So, I can type a couple of letters and then the software will complete the things.
There are many other keyboard utilities that can do the same thing. I use this one because it can also do much much more.
Or you could use a password utility such as Roboform.
Yet another option is a clipboard utility such as Clipmate. Here too a short sequence of keystrokes can eliminate a lot of typing.
It really would make sense for people who make keyboards to provide efficiency tools like this, but somehow Logitech does not seem to have latched on to the value of providing software that works well with its hardware.
Just another customer.
