E-mail, which literally means electronic mail, is a way of exchanging electronic messages, or mail, via the Internet. The advent of e-mail has vastly affected all other forms of letter delivery systems including the Unites States Postal Service (USPS). There are two prominent forms of e-mail Internet standard protocols. The first is called post office protocol (POP) and the other is called Internet message access protocol (IMAP). Almost every major e-mail provider on the Internet supports both protocols.
