Description

"Email" is more widely used than its hyphenated sibling, and AP Style quit fighting it and has embraced "email" as the accepted spelling.

Started a WP-wide change, using this ticket as the collector of diffs.

The patch applied better than I thought it would but is stale as expected. Let's refresh this and get it in, the inconsistency is starting to bug me.

In 33774:

Drop the hyphen from e-mail and standardize on email.

The AP Stylebook changed this in 2011, and we're woefully inconsistent, so let's go with the standard.

props morganestes, voldemortensen, niallkennedy (for patching on the previous AP style).
fixes #26156.
