(Redirected from E-Mail)

E-mail, or electronic mail, is a service that allows Internet users (both the human and robotic kind) to exchange messages to one another. E-mail message can be anything from a simple note reminding a university student of an upcoming frat party, or an advertisement promoting cheap Cialis (advertisements through e-mail is called "SPAM").

To benefit from the exchange of e-mail, a person must have an e-mail address. This is usually a username, followed by the "@" symbol (pronounced at), then the domain name where the e-mail address is being hosted. Once someone has an e-mail address, they must have an e-mail account. Generally, when a person gets an e-mail address, they get an e-mail account as well. This account provides an Inbox for e-mail messages to be stored as well as an Outbox for a user's pending e-mails to be sent.

UC Davis students are offered the option to have a UC Davis e-mail account. Some opt out, creating an e-mail account at many free e-mail services. E-mail offers an affordable solution for university students to keep in touch with relatives in other states and countries. E-mail also provides a way for people in different countries to connect with each other.
