Example text

Ml was also sent as E-mail and G2 as an E-message. Mary sent an E-message the following day to say she was in her office and Guy could call at his convenience. He called within five minutes of receiving the E-message and Mary and Guy had a telephone conversation for about 1 hour. Mary asked Guy why he wanted to talk on the phone rather than through computer communication. He replied that since they had never met or communicated before, he wanted to get a "feel" for who she was which, he felt, could best be done with a rich medium.

The sender may therefore abort or change the E-message in progress.
