What is E-mail Writing?
E-mail is electronic mail. It is the exchange of stored communication of computers through telecommunication. These messages are in a text form. They are sent from one computer to another through internet and stored in a remote computer till the receiver goes through them.
While reading an E-mail we must bear in mind that the messages sent are clear, concise and to the point. Messages sent by E-mail are cheaper and can cover a large area throughout the world. The advantage in E-mail is speed. You can send or respond to messages or send and receive entire documents in seconds.
E-mail is divided into two parts viz: address and message. With the help of address, a message can be sent to the proper person. Formalities such as salutation and subscription can be avoided.

My dear Vijay,
You will be happy to know that we have purchased a new house in a posh colony of Ahmedabad. It is in Bhopal. The place is extremely calm, quiet and serene. The streets are quite wide and spacious.

It is a double-storey house. There are three rooms in the front portion and three in the rear. It is airy and well-Ventilated. There are marble floorings. The walls are painted very beautifully. The pride of the house is its kitchen and bathroom. Both are fully tiled. There is a beautiful marble tub inside the bathroom.
There are metallic fittings. There is also the provision of a telephone shower. There is a system of cold and hot water. I have my own separate room for studies. Our new neighbours are very nice people. On the right of our house is Mr Juneja. He is a postgraduate teacher teaching Mathematics.
Quite a large number of students come to him for guidance. These groups of boys and girls talk highly of his ability and hard work. On the left is Mr Dang, an officer in NBCC. He is thoroughly polite, courteous and gentle.

My dear Uncle,
Yesterday was Saturday. It was my birthday. I celebrated it with great fun and gaiety.
Early in the morning, there was a knock at the door. I opened it. I saw a stranger holding a nicely wrapped parcel in his hand. He asked me my name. He also asked me my relationship with you.
After that confirmation, he gave me the parcel. I opened it and to my surprise and happiness, there was an extremely beautiful, golden wristwatch and a safari suit. There was also a brief note ‘To Ajay with Love on his twenty-first birthday. I began to jump with joy.
Dear Uncle, it is so kind of you to have remembered me. Your valuable gift speaks volumes of your love for me. Even sitting at a far off place in a foreign country, you have not forgotten me. No doubt, I got a heap of presents on the eve of my birthday, but none is as precious and beautiful as your present. I know my Aunt and my cousins love me dearly. I thank you for this nice and everlasting gift of permanent value. As and when I look at my watch for time, I remember you and your love for me. The safari suit is excellent.

Write an E-mail to your younger brother asking him not to work very hard or tax himself too much.
Subject: Avoid overworking
My dear Pankit,
I am in receipt of your school progress report. It tells about your brilliant performance in all school subjects but zero in physical exercise. It is a matter of great sadness. Dear Pankit! You have been in the hospital for over a month. You are extremely frail and weak. You are still continuing medicine.
You must observe precautions. It is said that prevention is better than cure. You need not work so hard. You need not tax your feeble body so much as it will tell upon your health. Your fever can relapse, you can fall a prey to a serious illness. You should know that nothing is more important than this life. If one is hale and hearty, he will enjoy all the blessings of life. But if one is ill, all the charm of life ends automatically.
What is use of being industrious and hardworking at the cost of losing one’s health? Keep yourself free from strain and tension. Do not exert too much. Improve your health. Build your stamina. Acquire more and more physical resistance. Take plenty of exercises. Eat nourishing food. Next time when we meet, I want to see you healthy and glowing.
Your loving brother,
