Misspelling in Title[edit]

Since “email” is a misspelling (It should be hyphenated as “e-mail” because the name of the letter E is said as part of the word instead of the letter being pronounced phonetically as part of the word.) and it is in the title of this page, what can I do to correct the misspelling and keep the links working which direct to this page?

Various dictionaries and encyclopedias have revised the spelling as well (see Email#Spelling). I agree it is somewhat of a nuisance for such a minor detail. However, the spelling has changed as a result of increased use, and that is a fact we must cope with. Fortunately, we have Redirects on wikipedia. ale (talk) 16:04, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

Page moved[edit]

This page was originally named Email mailbox, by analogy with the unfortunate dichotomy between mailing list and electronic mailing list. ale (talk) 16:07, 7 June 2010 (UTC)
