E-mail, of course. I read that Netflix is the USPO's office biggest customer and they are having a fit about the USPO's potentially stopping Saturday delivery.

I do both.  My husband is currently deployed and i email him but i also send him letters and card the old fashion way--we have been married for 13 yrs and he has every letter and card i ever sent him! ;D  when he was in Basic training for the army, i never know when or how long i was gonna get to talk to him so every night when i got home from work i would write him a letter and mail it the next day!  I did that EVERYDAY he was gone!  :crybaby2:

People think it's so cute when I send them letters.  I haven't done that in a while though.  Maybe I should!  I mostly email.  I think that's what everyone does nowadays.  I don't see how the post office is still in business!  Letters are a thing of the past and only older people do it, at least that's been my experience.  Everyone should take a few minutes and write someone a letter.  It's old-fashioned, adorable, and they'll really appreciate it!

email all the way. I get my bills and bank statements through email. I only get junk mail in the snail mailbox, the only time I use snail mail is if I need to ship something tangible. But if it's just words and I'd really rather not waste the paper. Not to mention the waste of money due to postage ;)

Your husband is so lucky to have you write to him "the old fashioned" way.  I know from our son and duaghter who in the services that "snail mail" is definitely the most cherished!

Our son is currently in Kuwait.  We actually use Facebook and Skype to communicate "live".

Our daughter kept every letter we sent to her in Basic Training too!

I use both, but I'm increasingly dependent on email.

I still do both but most is e-mail.
I do both email and the old fashioned mail. But email is definitely more convenient

Oh no :o Netflix must get their movies to their customers! Although it would be much more awesome if Netflix had all their movies available in their "instant" section. Twould save them so much money and allow customers to watch any movie they wanted whenever they wanted.

  If it's just a note, I email, but for some special things, like birthdays and such, I send cards, and letters in the mail.. 'snail mail'

I use both.  If the message is short I'll email and if its long/personal I'll mail it.

    :)     Most of the time I use the Internet because it is faster than other methods. If I have any problems with my e-mails, then I use regular USA mail.
