Electronic communication has upset me — trouble follows (5)

Ross

I think it could be either:

Which length description are you looking for?:

5

1-4

email

'electronic communication' is the definition.
(email is a kind of electronic communication)

'upset me trouble follows' is the wordplay.
'upset' says the letters should be written in reverse.
'trouble' becomes 'ail' (synonyms).
'follows' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'me' reversed gives 'em'.
'em'+'ail'='EMAIL'

'has' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for email that I've seen before include "Post" , "Message sent via computer" , "Digital message" , "Spam perhaps" , "Electronic message" .)
