Melissa J has been using email ever since it became available for her to use, in 1996! She initially used it as fast way to communicate with friends and family in college on what is now dated PC's. As time progressed, she obviously used email much more frequently. Today, it's the primary means of communication with teachers, other school staff, and parents at school (Melissa J teaches). She frequently does need to copy co-workers and administrators on emails that she writes. This includes carbon copies (Cc) of emails and blind carbon copies (Bcc) of emails.
