I have mixed feelings about updating email addresses for letters that
are sent that way.
I see the email address like an authors' or publisher's address. It was
that way at the creation of the source, and to try to keep it updated
would be futile. Publishers move their offices and no one goes back to
change the Publisher's address. It was that way when the book was
published. For purposes of contacting an email source in the future, it
would be better to add his/her location -- city, and maybe street address.
> I am confused. Isn't a source given one time per dataset with citations to that source. If the email address is part of the source element data, then changing it should take less than one second.
