Two weeks after subscribing, I have de-lurked.

I am a student in the Business and Technical Writing Program at the
University of Delaware. I am writing a short paper for my Rhetoric
class on electronic text. Will you answer some questions about e-
mail? My concern is with e-mail in the business environment.

* Do people use a less formal writing style using e-mail? Is a
less formal style indicative of a less formal function? What are
those little faces called? :-)

* Is a less formal style encroaching on the more traditional
methods of communication such as letters, memos and
proposals? For instance have spelling and grammar suffered?

* Is e-mail replacing memos? Telephone calls? Or has e-mail
formed its own niche in business communication?

I would appreciate your thoughts. Thanks.
