A preposition is a terrible word to end a sentence with. I'd never write the
preceding sentence in a manual, but I would put it in email/e-mail/E-mail --
Sometimes. The techwriting list seems to be rather informal, so unless I'm
recommending a particular phrase, I'm not too worried about perfect grammar,
just with communicating an idea.
