I prefer... um... welll I don't prefer email but I like it better than regular mail. XD
It's just me, I'm not saying people are wrong, but I see nothing personal about a letter. It's paper somebody wrote on... so unless I particularly like the way their handwriting looks, I don't see it as any more personal than typing.
Plus there's just more you can do with electronic communications... not to mention they don't take up physical space or paper or require a truck (and possibly an airplane) to deliver.
