"emails" is a terrible term; email by itself is already a mass noun.

Can we have "emails" renamed to "email"?

  • Done. Why isnt there a "tag-rename", or "bad-tag" tag?

  • Because nobody has created one yet and you don't have the privs to do so.

    Yes, the tag should be email. Not only because it's a mass noun (but it can also be a countable noun), but because that's the name that SO, SU, SF, AU, U&L, Android and Apple use. Feb 20, 2014 at 12:17

    @Flyk It's better to discuss tags separately: one thread per tag or group of closely-related tag. Those mass tag questions are too broad, items tend to get lost there. Feb 20, 2014 at 12:18

Let's use [email]

Why? Well, emails is really the end result, but primarily because every other Stack Exchange site with an email tag uses [email] instead of [emails]. Let's keep it consistent.
