Date: Wed, 14 Jun 1995 19:20:11 GMT From: Barnhart Subject: email, e-mail, E mail, etc. In The Barnhart Dictionary Companion (Vol. 7.4 and 8.1) where these and related terms are entered there is evidence provided of a wide variety of spellings, e.g.: e-mail, e mail, Email, EMAIL, E-mail, E-Mail, Email, and email. On the basis of frequency we chose e-mail as the initial listing. Dictionaries generally have entered this term as E-mail. "Our records suggest that by 1984 the preferred form had become e-mail." This applies both to the noun and verb uses. Barnhart[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
