Dear Kevin  ,

If the below query is issed by the web client then your job could be 
done by the said above query as well .
To my limited knowledge  no need to write a trigger.
Just try using this


> acc=# UPDATE email SET email_address = 'mynewusername(at)mydomain(dot)com' 
> WHERE id = 14;
> -------------

I suppose this is update has been done without the trigger in place.

To my limited knowledge is the trigger going into a sort of race condition

Its my pleaseure.

But kindly  pass on the solution if you have found one.
