I’m just going through what I believe to be the final edit of my book Juggling Life, Kids & You and I’m stuck on the word inbox. I have 4 instances of ‘inbox’ and 20 of ‘in box’. Which is the correct one?
On turning to Google, I cannot find anyone that has written in box as 2 different words, nor can I find a blog with the title inbox vs. in box. Am I now to assume that ‘inbox’ is correct?
I’ve just found the word inbox in the oxforddictionaries.com, which refers to it being an electronic folder in which emails are recieved. The online Collins Dictionary (collinsdictionary.com) describes inbox as an online folder on a computer, or a shallow container.
Although I’m now going to change all references in my book to inbox, I would appreciate your thoughts and comments.
Until next time…
