When you log on to retrieve umpteen E-Mails, you may delete many unread, and barely skim many others. Conversely, snail mail can be read at one's leisure -- and denotes a bit more effort than E-Mail.

I've heard and read that handwritten notes are best of all. They're certainly more personal, and more indicative of one's writing ability since no grammar or spell-checkers were available, etc.

Whatever you do, make sure to personalize the letter to that particular company and interview. Sending a bland form letter is a major turn-off.

Another *MAJOR* turn-off is poor handwriting (type if you can't write neatly), spelling, and grammar. (Before anyone says that that's self-explanatory, I've seen more than one top candidate summarily rejected after seeing his sloppy, misspelled, ungrammatical poor excuse for a thank you note.)
