I'm very new to Base, so any help is appreciated! I've created the fields
postcode and email address, amongst others, and I want to create an input
mask for each of them.

I've started with the postcode mask, and entered AANNNAA and I've tried
LLNNNLL in the field properties box but neither of them seem to work, the
only things that are rejected are those that are over 7 characters.

Is it possible to stop Base from removing the first 0 in a number field?

Phone numbers, post codes, mail addresses are text values and should be stored in VARCHAR fields.

Also, I think I should be using a list box or combo box to limit my user to
predefined values, but I have no idea how to do that. For example, I would
like them to have to choose from: Miss, Mrs, Mr for their title.

List boxes are made for this. Combo boxes are the same as text fields with additional auto-complete functionaility. You get more qualified help on where you find forums to ask Base related questions, a tutorial section and example documents.
For instance: [Solved] Phone number format
