e-mail or an e-mail?

Posted by Kodai Yonehara on November 29, 2000


I have a question.

The word 'letter' is countable while 'mail' is uncountable. When I wrote 'I sent e-mail to my mother.' an American friend of mine told me that I should put an article 'an' like 'an e-mail.' But should I?

Thank you.
