Arguably the most revolutionary and pervasive part of the Internet (rivaled only by browsing the Web), email is an application whose use has joined the world's lexicon as firmly as television did—and much more quickly. It's easy to understand why: Now, effectively for free, a person anywhere on Earth can communicate nearly instantaneously with someone else no matter where she is on the planet. Email has become the lingua franca of the Information Age; people use it to send each other everything from brief one-line messages to whole picture albums or business documents. Email can get you in touch with everybody from a family member down the hall to your congressman or favorite author. For all that, email is still conceptually one of the simplest of applications: You type in some text, and off it goes into the cloud of flowing bits that is the Internet.
