This appears to happen only on email page and not on word document.

My spacebar removes my text. If I make an error and have to go back to correct, for example, if I write te and forgot the h (the) when I use my left arrow to backspace and put curser between the t and the e here is what happens. If I hit the h key it removes the e , if I hit the spacebar, it removes the e.

Do you know what could be wrong? I could not find answer on your site.

It sounds like you have accidentally chosen the "Overwrite" feature on your keyboard rather than the "Insert" feature Simply click the button once on your keyboard that says "Insert" This will toggle you back to "Insert", which is what you are used to

The Insert key can be found in the group of 6 keys that are located just above the arrow keys
