another easy one!!
I start with the letter e,
I end with the letter e.
I contain only one letter,
Yet I am not the letter e!
What am I?

envelope
starts with an "e"
ends with an "e"
contains only one letter - that's what you mail in an envelope, generally... pay no attention to Dave "party pooper" Vick!
