Cannot update email field.


I work on an iMac with OSX 10.5.8 running FMPro 9.0v3. I have an email field in the contact database which displays emails addresses. I can click on the email and it pops an email open in the apple mail program so I can compose an email to that contact. 

From time to time I need to change the email address, however, anytime I try to change the text in the field it pops an email. The address seems to be a hyperlink and won't let me change the info in the field. It is displayed in blue text and the rest of the fields display in black text.

I have 1,200 contacts with email addresses so I cannot delete the field and start over but I have many contacts with old emails in the field and I don't know what to do to change the address.
