# LuaLaTeX KOMA scrlttr2 without E-Mail:

I made a letter with scrlttr2 KOMA script and activated fromemail=on but that brings up the pre E-Mail: in the line of the email that looks like this: E-Mail: adress@url.tld.

Now I don't like the pre E-Mail: there. Can it be set off somehow?

• How about showing us the code (without personal informations!) you used? Then it is much easier to help you ... Welcome to TeX.SE! – Mensch Dec 2 '16 at 11:15
• Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. Reproducing the problem and finding out what the issue is will be much easier when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – Reinstate Monica - M.

It is not clear if you want no E-mail there or just a symbol. However, the following MWE shows you how you can change the text:

\documentclass[
fontsize=11pt,
paper=a4,
parskip=half,
enlargefirstpage=on,    % More space on first page
fromalign=right,        % PLacement of name in letter head
fromphone=on,           % Turn on phone number of sender
fromrule=aftername,     % Rule after sender name in letter head
fromemail=true,         % <===========================================
subject=beforeopening,  % Placement of subject
locfield=narrow,        % Additional field for sender
foldmarks=on,           % Print foldmarks
]{scrlttr2}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{blindtext}

\setkomafont{fromname}{\sffamily \LARGE}
\setkomafont{pagenumber}{\sffamily}
\setkomafont{subject}{\bfseries}

\setkomavar{fromname}{Max Musterfrau}
\setkomavar{fromphone}{+49\,12\,34\,56\,789}
\setkomavar{fromemail}{max.musterfrau@web.de}
\setkomavar{signature}{(Max Musterfrau)}
\setkomavar{place}{Ort}
\setkomavar{date}{\today}
\usepackage{marvosym} % <================================================

\begin{document}
\renewcaptionname{english}\emailname{\Email} % <=========================
\renewcaptionname{english}\phonename{\Telefon} % <=======================
\begin{letter}{To: Claire Laterfield}
\setkomavar{subject}{Greetings}
\opening{Dear Claire,}
I am writing this letter because I have nothing better to do.

\closing{Sincerely,}
\end{letter}
\end{document}


Important are the lines in the code marked with % <===========.

Package marvosym loads the symbols for email etc. With \renewcaptionname you can advice KOMA-Script to use the given symbols instead of the text.

The resulting pdf is:

Without having a symbol or a text for email etc. you have to change the code in the following way: Change the text/symbol to ~ (Blank), change the separator to ~ too: \setkomavar{emailseparator}{~}.

With the following MWE

\documentclass[
fontsize=11pt,
paper=a4,
parskip=half,
enlargefirstpage=on,    % More space on first page
fromalign=right,        % PLacement of name in letter head
fromphone=on,           % Turn on phone number of sender
fromrule=aftername,     % Rule after sender name in letter head
fromemail=true,         % <===========================================

you get the wanted result:
