The E-mails are widely used by people in modern time. At the same time, the traditional letters are forgotten by people gradually. Though most of the people think that the e-mail is much better than the traditional letters, I think that both of them have advantages, but also disadvantages. It is no doubt that the e-mails are very convenient for people’s life. It makes the instant exchange of information come true. It provides a platform for people all over the world to communicate with each other.
It costs much less time and money than the traditional letters. It can send many multimedia data like songs and videos that the traditional letters can’t send. But it also has some disadvantages. Most of the people said that they have received many junk e-mails, which makes them very confused. Also the e-mail makes the personal information let out more easily because of the dangers that the internet causes naturally. Last but not the least, many people think that the e-mail doesn’t have the same milk of human kindness as the traditional letters.
As the same as the e-mail, the traditional letters also have advantages and disadvantages. Compared with other ways of communication, the traditional letters can express feelings more sincerely and they are safer in protecting personal information than the e-mail when they were delivered. Also the people will be expectant when they look forward to the letter in reply and the moment they open the letter they will be very excited.
But as the most people believed, the traditional letters also have some disadvantages. They delivered more slowly than the e-mail and they need more money to deliver than the e-mail. When people have some affairs that are very important and urgent, the traditional letters will cause delay in work. Every coin has two sides. Both of the e-mails and the traditional letters have advantages and disadvantages. Though the e-mail is widely used and it develops quickly, it can never replace the traditional letters.
