The speaker pronounces the 'ríomh' of 'ríomhphost' as though it were 'roimh'.

I'm used to hearing the long 'i' in that word, so the speaker's pronunciation sounds a little off to me too. Here are recordings in each of the 3 major dialects: http://breis.focloir.ie/en/fuaim/r%C3%ADomhphost.

Should "he sends email" not be accepted here?

Do they actually say ríomhphost in spoken Irish or do they use a loanword instead?
