I often ask when could the first email be sent from New Zealand to Britain. 1876? The telegraph line came into Cable Bay, Nelson from Australia. A telegram is an email, a message digitally coded with zeros and ones (dots and dashes). The only things that have changed are the cost has plummeted and the convenience has gone "through the roof".
Convenience from going to a telegraph office to now pulling a device out of your pocket, writing and sending it.
