E-mail is fast, easy and inexpensive. Email is a formal conversation. It should be point to point and well written. In current market there are many service providers who provide free e-mail services on the Internet, such as www.gmail.com, www.yahoo.com, www.hotmail.com and www.msn.com. The first part of the email address is a user name. The second part or domain name defines the Internet provider where the mail is sent. The two parts are separated by '@' sign (pronounced as "at the rate"). The domain name is followed by an extension that indicates the type of organization to which the network belongs.
