Spelling of internet & email

Does “the internet” have capital letters?

I spell internet with a small “i”.

We don’t spell telephone with a capital T or postal with a capital P.

The internet is as ordinary as the phone, so there is no need to capitalise it.

Does email have a hyphen (e-mail)?

email is one character shorter than e-mail, and shorter is what journalists are always aiming for.
