We are now living in the 21st century, years after letters had been started to send messages to people across the globe, this normally took days, or even months depending on where the other person is located. Many methods were tried. Still it is a procedure used commonly, though with great help of companies such as TCS, FEDEX, etc.

A letter now takes far less time as it used to take some years back. But it still takes time, for example a person in Pakistan sending a letter to a person in United Kingdom; it would take around 2 working days to send a letter where as it would have taken several days to send by normal post. Normally in a letter all the emotions, all the messages are sent to anywhere. It suited the earlier technology since the technology was not so advanced at that time.

Coming to the new era, we have Electronic mail (E-mail), which is fast, reliable, and efficient. I should say e-mail depend solely on the mail server that you are using. Mail servers is the company that you are using to send e-mails, Examples of mail servers can include Hotmail, Yahoo mail, Live mail, Gmail, etc.

Getting back to the topic of our discussion, E-mail has revolutionized letter sending, it is almost the same thing, but there are a few MAJOR differences, that can be:E-mail is normally soft copy that is an electronic or digital copy exists but that’s not the problem as an electronic copy can be easily printed using printers. E-mail normally takes a couple of minutes to be sent to the other person, regardless of the location from where the e-mail is being sent.

I would also like to add there are a lot of chances your personal data in the e-mails is sometimes misused by criminals such as hackers. Hacking is the process when a person gains unauthorized access to a user’s computer, and manipulates the data wrongly. But there are methods that can be used to avoid hacking. The method that is used to break into a computer is normally through by breaking the password. The solution to this is having an alphanumeric password. By saying this I mean a password such as lion is not strong.

But a password such as li2on is medium in security and a password such as Li2On! is very strong. So keeping a strong password does help. Getting back to the topic, I would close the discussion by saying that e-mail is the new letter sending technique. So have a go at it without any hesitation.
