I've started to see 'emailed' a lot in our company correspondence but as a non-native speaker I always tend to use 'sent email' instead. Here are some examples from reliable sources:
“I worked with a lady in England named Elizabeth; she’s the best namer of horses I’ve ever met,” Mr. Roberts said. “So I emailed her and asked what I would name him. She emailed right back. She didn’t say ‘I suggest,’ or ‘I think.’” She said, “His name is Benediction.” -- New York Times
“We condemn the use of the death penalty in all its forms. The death penalty is an inhuman, cruel and irreversible punishment that has no place in modern law,” Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom said in an emailed comment to Reuters news agency. -- Independent
Can we use 'email' as a verb as it is? How normal is this?
According to my own research, 'emailed' has been used a lot but 'email' as a verb is not common. So is this an exception just for the past tense?
Emailed - Lengusa
Email them - Lengusa (replace them with him/her etc)
