    Email

    You go to your mailbox (outside, inside or wherever) collect your mail.

    You take a seat and read your (mail or mails)?

    Next scenario.

    You turn on your computer check your mail and find you have several waiting.

    Do you read your email or emails.

    If email stands for electronic mail -- why do people use the word emails? Would email be correct the same as mail is? No "S" ?

    I vote for mail and email not mails and emails.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Same here.

    And I don't send someone an e-mail. I send an e-mail message. E-mail is the system; messages are the result of the system.

    Then the other debate: e-mail vs. email. The Microsoft Manual of Style says it's e-mail (with the hyphen), although Google trends show that the hyphenated version is being used less and less, and use of "email" is on an upward swing.

    Bob,

    If you get 5 letters do you read your mails?

    For those who want to know what wikipedia says.

    Or

    Those that only want their exchange mail server to work.

    Emails messages on the way check your mail app.
