what do YOU do to electronic mail?

I heard Neal Conan on NPR's Talk of the Nation ask listeners to "zap" him an email & I started musing how you can do almost anything to an email. If you're a gmail user you can even Google your email. Which is different than googling yourself, which still sounds somehow inappropriate to me. What do you do to your email? Leave it in the comments. Here are some options:


  1. - hurl
    - excrete
    - eject
    - fling
    - toss
    - hump (used like Navy guys say it; i.e. to transport something)

    Personally, I prefer hump. As in, "Hey dude, hump me an email about that website you were telling me about."

  2. drop
    dropkick (hmm, maybe not)

    although I'd like to dropkick my computer sometimes ....
