What is the correct way to refer to electronic mail in writing? Is it eMail, email, e-mail or electronic mail?
It seems as if most dictionaries, publishers and writers have standardized on e-mail. The same is true of e-book, e-learning, e-literate, e-commerce and any other e-thingy.
Don’t forget the hyphen (-). Get into the habit of using it when you write reports or e-mails.
Thank you for your prompt response to my e-mail …
In view of this convention in writing, I believe it will be in order to talk about an e-pioneer – using the term e-learning pioneer seems so long-winded. And perhaps e-pioneer is a more apt term to describe those people who go into schools to encourage the use of digital resources, including e-books and e-mail – their work is not only about e-learning.
Viva, all e-pioneers.
