   What is e-mail?   

E-mail is electronic mail. It is the most popular form of communication on the Internet. It is a fast and economical way for anyone with a PC and a modem to keep in touch with friends, family members and business associates.

E-mail allows you to combine the clarity of a written letter with the immediacy of a phone call. For deaf people, sending an e-mail is usually cheaper than the cost of a textphone call or a fax.
