    E-Mail or E-mail

    If one has to capitalize the word "e-mail," should the letter "m" also be capitalized?

    Thanks.

    As far as I'm concerned, no. If the word comes at the beginning of a sentence then of course you have to capitalise the "E", but "E-mail" is fine.

    You will find that the hyphen is being used less and less. Most people I know would say that have "an email address" (no hyphen).
