Hope someone can help me. I'm struggling with the exact usage of という in this sentence:


Many thanks.



This という means "saying that" and is describing the contents of the メール.

The main part of the sentence is this:


Xというメール is "an e-mail which says X".

という is used to indicate the object or thing you are talking about. Or want to convey something about which you do not know on depth. For example : 学校という言葉を習いました。(I learnt a word as "school")
