I tried to resist this thread, but can't. I think Ella and RFC 1983 are

While e-mail is still widely used, the convention is steadily leaning
toward email. I use email; used to use e-mail; *always* hated E-mail and
any other variation (such as eMail).

I don't understand the resistance to omitting the hyphen. Do those who
insist on the hyphen also write inter-net and mo-dem?

I like e-mail, and look at it as an abbrev. of electronic mail.
