Storing and fast retrieving of Email address

Hi All,
I have a large table (3.4M rows) that contains users informations.
The primary key is the Email address, indexed, and I want to speed-up the query time.
I'm thinking to change the email field from plain text to some other datatype, like an Hash or a numerical value.
Can anyone help me to find a correct and fastest datatype?

p.s. The tipycal query is quite simple: SELECT filed1, field2,field3 FROM Users WHERE email =''
