See the NCAA Rules and Regulations thread here on the College Forum.

NCAA Rules and Regulations on the BOTN College Forum

There, you will see that the differences in contact regulations are tied to both NCAA Division and to the Academic Year of the High School student-athlete.

Most often e-mails are treated like "telephone calls" for the purposes of recruiting with the exception being that e-mails can start after September of the junior year. Therefore, the sophomore versus junior year standing is the most critical differentiator.
