E-mail is extremely fast. E-mail is not as private as a regular letter.
E-mail is inexpensive; even for someone across the world there are no long distance bills. You have to learn how to use an e-mail program.
You can send your message or attached documents when it is convenient for you and the recipient can reply when it is convenient for them; no phone tag You must have access to a computer with the proper hardware, software, and Internet connection.


You can read your e-mail from anywhere in the world. It's not as personal as a handwritten letter.
