e-pal

noun; acronym
a friend which communicates with one by e-mails. This is probably formed by analogizing with the word "pen-pal", which refers to a friend that keeps in contact with another person using letters (pens). Or it may be formed by concatenating the letter "e", which now commonly stands for "electronic" (by acronym) and "pal", which means "friend".
