Would is better: receiving a letter in your mail box or email?

An email has become the most convenient mode of communication with others. However, does the email rob you of that special status which is normally associated with a standard letter? I may be old-fashioned, but I still feel that an inland letter still revokes a sense of importance than emails.

As the norms of life have changed, so the number of letters coming in mail box have reduced. But surely a letter in mailbox shows an extra effort and hence I consider it more significant as compared to letter in email.

I agree entirely. I mean there are those who want to write, and end up typing or doing neither because of physical limitations... But theres nothing that makes me smile more than getting a hand written letter, it's more personal that way.

Snail mail...what is it the kids say now a days...For the Win(FTW) I totally prefer to get a letter, card, spam, package in my mailbox rather then my email box, it means someone was thinking about me, and cared enough to actually pay the postage, and take their TIME, which to me is the most valuable asset in life, to send me something to say they was thinking of me. Even if it something I ordered off the internet, and they are just happy to get my money. Cheers.
