    mail

    Hi there,

    I know 'mail', 'voice mail' are uncountable. But 'email' is countable. Am I right?
    Are the following sentences correct?

    1. I received an emails today.
    2. I received a piece of mail today.
    3. I received a piece of voice of mail today.

    Thanks
    pete
