The British Library is collaborating with Microsoft's new Windows Live Hotmail service to create the first ever archive of British e-mails.
The Email Britain campaign, which is running throughout May, asks the British public to forward a memorable or significant e-mail from their inbox. The messages will be included in a digital archive that will be stored at the British Library for future generations.
