Email

Email stands for "electronic mail," which is a message similar to a letter that is delivered to your mailbox. The difference, of course, is that it is created electronically (in a computer) and is delivered over the Internet straight to another computer. You "open" the electronic mail and read the contents, and you can send an email response instantly. When you receive an email, the phone doesn't ring; your computer doesn't have to be turned on; you can choose to open the email or delete it unopened; you can read it anytime of the day or night; and you can answer it anytime of the day or night.

No matter where the recipient of your message lives or how long the message, the cost to you is a local phone call because email goes through a modem and the phone lines. In fact, on that same local call you can send email to a number of people. It's much quicker and cheaper than using the post office, it's much more fun, and you don't have to get dressed.
