    if the cell said paul it would email to pauls email address or if the same
    cell said mark it would email to marks email address and so on.

    any ideas

    Create a table with two columns, column A would be a name, Paul etc, column B would contain the equivalent email address from column A

    Select the range of data entered then choose Insert Menu and Name and enter a name for this range (I've used the name TEST). Then use Data Sort (this function wont work unless the data is sorted into order).

    Highlight the cell you want say C2 and enter this formula

    =VLOOKUP(D1,TEST,2)

    If you enter a name in D1 the email address will appear in D2
