I have field 'email' has many email address including duplicates

I can find duplicate and no of occurrence using

SELECT EmailAddress , count(*)
FROM renewal
GROUP BY EmailAddress
HAVING COUNT(EmailAddress + Lists ) > 1

However i need to update another column 'emailcount' for duplicate id like below

email emailcount 1 2 1 2 3

How to modify the query to update the field.

Any help will be highly appreciated

;WITH cte AS
		ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY email ORDER BY email) AS NewemailCount
UPDATE cte SET emailCount = NewemailCount;

You may want to just use it in SELECT query so that you do not need to update the table whenever new email is added
