Email is a method of online communication with one or more people using special
software on an Internet-connected computer. It is not a private form of
communication since messages can be easily copied and sent to others.
It is difficult to convey emotion or intent in an email message, so you
must clearly state what you mean to say. You should be aware that there
are rules of etiquette or "netiquette" to follow when using
email. For example, USING ALL CAPITAL LETTERS is frowned upon because
it is considered to be "shouting" in an online environment.
