An email address associated with the object.

Public emails only

Add only email addresses that are intended to be public, such as those provided by a business, non-profit, or government agency for inquiries.

Email-addresses which are only available on a website after solving a captcha, or which are in other ways obfuscated to protect against SPAM-bots should not be tagged in OSM

JOSM plugin

This tag is an external reference and is compatible with the JOSM/Plugins/Tag2Link

Contact namespace alternative

There is an alternative contact:email=* tagging approach involving organising various things under a "contact" namespace . That makes tags longer and more complex, but perhaps more organised. This simple email=* tag has the advantage of being shorter, and is used more in the DB.
