You're close - you could do it like

> put fld 'emailList' into tEmailList
> put empty into tNewEmail
> repeat for each line tEmail in tEmailList
>    if line tEmail is not empty then
>       put tEmail & CR after tNewEmailList
>   end if
> end repeat
> put tNewEmailList into fld 'emailList'


but easier would be

> put fld 'emailList' into tEmailList
> filter tEmailList without empty
> put tEmailList into fld 'emailList'
