E-mail (electronic mail) is electronic post sent and received between computers linked over networks or the Internet. You can use e-mail to keep in touch with friends and family without the time involved in mailing letters or the expense of long-distance telephone calls. E-mail messages take anything from a few minutes to a few hours to arrive.

You are allowed unlimited mailboxes with your BTinternet account (annual payment customers only), including the one that you chose when you registered. Your home page uses one of your mailboxes as its URL (Internet address).
