Email

January 9, 2016 - By 

Email, short for electronic mail, is the transmission of digital messages and digital files. Email messages can be sent within the same computer (between user accounts), within a local network, through an intranet or, most commonly, through the internet.

To successfully use email, both the sender and the recipient(s) of the mail need to have an email address.  Emails can be sent to one recipient or multiple recipients at once.
