(Suggests three possibilities: mail, fax, and email. Implies that email is best

environment and resources.)

Mary, the limitations of your three choices reflect your interests and I can't
blame you for that. But since you ask, I suggest a fourth choice:

I would want to get info on your services, via email, IFF (if and only if) I
asked
about such services or asked a related question first.

I don't appreciate the implication that those of us who don't want (even short,
environmentally correct) unsolicited ads appearing in our email are not
interested
in improving our work methods.
