E-mail? Email?

“Should it be “e-mail” or “email”? Bryan Garner answers.

I prefer e-mail , as in How to e-mail [not email ] a professor. But I’m no “pseudo-snoot eccentric” (Garner’s term): email, no hyphen, is just fine by me.

Off subject, but have you heard of a radio program called Boston Calling? Rather interesting. http://www.bbc.co.uk/podcasts/series/boston
