Could someone add an example for the purported synonymy between "to email" and "to mail" in this line: "mail (transitive): To send by electronic mail" in the mail entry. I have never heard "to mail" used to mean "to send an email". Thank you. 2604:2000:DFC0:100:DC6B:AC1F:3C8A:C3CE 17:43, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

"I need to mail my tutor"? Who says that? Not in my corner of the world. 184.153.73.221 18:31, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
The world has other corners than yours, believe it or not. Equinox 22:01, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
Believe it or not, your quote sounds like you have to stuff your tutor into a box and ship him (to whom?) through you local post office. In what part of the Anglosphere have you ever heard that? 184.153.73.221 17:50, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
  • The "mail my tutor" usage sounds strange to me too, so I've added an {{rfv-sense}} tag to the entry. The sense has two quotations already, so only one more will be needed to verify it. —Mr. Granger (talkcontribs) 18:04, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
Cited: somebody who saw a (supposed) virus "open my e-mail package and start to mail my friends". Perhaps it needs a UK gloss? Equinox 05:40, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
I've heard it in America too. --WikiTiki89 13:43, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
  • RFV passed: quotations for "To contact (a person) by electronic mail" are at mail. --Dan Polansky (talk) 17:28, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
