Thanks for the replies guys help me with this one.

(v.*i.*c.*o.*d.*i.*n)

This will do exactly what I'm looking for but how do I add "\A" to specify the start of text and "\Z" to specify the end. As it is it will find each letter if it exists in the entire email and I simply need it to look in one word between spaces.

The "." says any character and the "*" says as many or anything. Now I just need to cap off the beginning and end to stop this stuff:

v<aldjfajd>i<dfadf>c<adfadaf>o<adfad>d<adfadf>i<adfadf>n

You could try

((\Av).*i.*c.*o.*d.*i.*n\b)

Yes this works but too well. This rule still looks for every character through out the email. The ".*" is looking at a space like a character
