I think you're right about the Xhosa pronounciation. Fortunately there is no x or ' in the word for (m)ail artist, as these letters/sounds are very hard to pronounce for non-native speakers. (there is an awesome movie in which a xhosa speaking man is the main character. Something about a cola bottle, a long journey and a coup d'etat - I think you should see it - if you don't know it already. I loved it even more than the movies about Alice (not sure if I may say that in this group..))

I think you can use the pre-word 'ost' for all ail artists in whose language 'mail' means 'post'.

In German a Mail Artist is a Post Künstler, so an Ail Artist will be an Ost Künstler, 'Ost' here not to be confused with the meaning 'East' but with the abbreviation of the Latin word 'ostium' which means 'opening', and an opening, although some'thing' which brings us to new places and/or insights, also is something without a 'thing', a piece of nothing.

I mentioned the German version, to point at the possibly misunderstanding of mixing Ost and east; for the other languages which use the Latin alphabet, the word for Ail Artist can start with ost- anyway.

So in Dutch an 'ostkunstenaar', in Spanish indeed an Artista Ostal, etcetera.
