I got Orange Box and I'm selling my old copys of hl2 and hl2:E1 to a friend but when I sent him the gift on steam, the link in his email was broken. i tried to resend it but that didn't work. so what I'm trying to do now is remove the code that came with hl2 and hl2:E1 from my steam acount so I can install w/ the dvds on his computer. how do I do this?

thanks,

I do believe you will need to contact support to do that, even then they will might say no.

Well, I received the key by Steam, not by email :)

When sending the key you have two options. Send to an email address (probably the one the recipient used to create the account), or you can send to an account on your friends list. I choose to add you to my list and send that way. Seems a more 'sure thing'. :D
