MOS says "use lowercase and always hyphenate for
clarity" when it comes to the use of "e" as part of

To me though, if the word is a marketing phrase or
product, the "e" should be capitalized in all
instances. Seems it would take on a proper noun sort
of status.

Plus, shouldn't the "e" in "E-mail" always be
capitalized, since "E" represents "electronic?" It
would be an abbreviation, hence the need to capitalize
the letter.

Any thoughts?
