    Talking how to write the word "email" correctly

    OK, after searching the net, I'm a bit confused-what is the correct way to write this word: email or e-mail?
    Is there any difference in meaning?

    It's a matter of style, I always use 'email'.

    Thanks.

    I have another question - which one of these two sentences is correct:

    1. You can find that in the page.
    2. You can find that on the page.

    Can both examples be used?

    It is usual to say 'You can find it in this book on page 10' for example. That is to say in the book but on the page.

    If you don't want to confuse e-mail (electronic mail) with the French word email (enamel/paint) then e-mail or E-mail should be used.

    Enamel in French is Úmail, it is not the same.
