Personally, I prefer the American Heritage dictionary. It uses E-mail as
indicated below.

electronic mail noun
Computer Science.
Messages sent and received electronically via telecommunication links, as
between microcomputers or terminals. Also called E-mail.

In the Britannia CD edition, under the Internet topic, is written:
The primary uses of the Internet are electronic mail (commonly called
"e-mail") ...

Isn't Britannia a definitive source for conventions?
