email i would say. As to why...who knows

I always use the first, but it all makes sense to me

That's a tricky one. it is probably e-mail. but if you tell someone verbally to email you, you don't say "e hyphen mail me" do you? as long as it is understood i shouldn't think it matter how you say or write it.

The reason I do it that way, is because my voice recognition types it like that. and Word Processor accepts it as spelt correctly. But cannot see any difference ether way

maybe the "-" is there so while saying it there's a pause between e and mail

PS it is made up of two words Electronic Mail

I'd've thought (Is I'd've a word?) that it was e-mail because it's made up of 2 words, and one is shortedned (don't ask me to explain that thinking). Otherwise you'd pronounce it differently, with "em" wouldn't you?

Someone get one of those old book things... a dictionary I belive they're called.
