EMAIL


This guide is for beginner and novice email users. Even advanced users will find something of interest. Electronic mail is the backbone of the Internet. Everyone uses email and there is an awful lot that you can do with it and with things related to it. Some of the following sites (which also includes general communications/FTP) are gems which would normally take you months to find.

EMAIL STRATEGY

Ideally, you should get your own domain name with its own email facility or use a web-based email such as GMAIL.

If you intend doing web development, having two email addresses is a good idea.
Use one as a personal email and one for your site stuff.

MISCELLANEOUS SERVICES

CERTIFIED mail offer a certified/recorded delivery system which some of you might find useful.
HUSHMAIL is a very good and highly secure system.
If you want to send someone an ecard then try cards of fluffy bunnies at LOVING YOU .
SKYPE lets you call via the Internet.

HOW TO FIND SOMEONE'S EMAIL ADDRESS

There is no central directory of email addresses. For information about how to find someone's email address, see my.email.address.is.

YOUR OWN

Would having YOUR OWN email facility on your own site be of any use?

MISCELLANEOUS TECHNICAL SITES

All the following are highly technical sites but well - worth the effort if you want to put the pedal to the metal!!

EXIM is a message transfer agent for Unix.

MAILINGLIST aka Majordomo. A program to automate mailing lists.

PERL MODULES are Perl-related email stuff.

IMAP Remote email access.

SENDMAIL

JAVAMAILAPI

EUDORA is industrial-strength commercial email.

PINE an email managing facility.

MUTT An email client for Unix.

QMAIL

SPAM

SPAMCAUCE and SPAMABUSE both have further information about spam.

Apparently in the US if you receive Unsolicited Commercial E-Mail you can get the senders and it could cost them $500/message under USC 47 s 5.5.2 :: which can be found at CORNELL.

FREEDOM

Who fights for freedom of speech on the Web? EFGA do!

PROTOCOLS

Technical email protocol stuff: OHIORFC and INTMAILCON.

PROGRAMMING

There are many sites to do with email programming (often associated with ASP (Active Server Pages)).ASP EMAIL is just one.

REMAILERS

For technical stuff about remailing, see the RELIABLE REMAILER.

COMMUNICATIONS

When you call up a site you send details of your location to that site. These details include the type of browser that you are using and the IP address of your computer. This IP (Internet Protocol) may be likened to a telephone number. Every computer on the Internet has its own IP address such as: 234.01.44.78.

To find out more about how much information you are sending, see PRIVACY.NET.

Want to know WHO IS the owner of a site? Also GEEKTOOLS are excellent.

And finally, for curiosity's sake. If you would like to see the route taken by your request for a file then TRACE ROUTE is the place to go.

FTP ... FILE TRANSFER PROTOCOL

EMAIL FTP is a gem and shows some of the advanced things that you can do with email. Study it closely for high-cred in the nerd community!!!

For more about FTP FTP PLANET is worth a look.

Normally, I use FTP Navigator to shift my files about the Web. TRANSLOAD is useful if you wish to transload (move) files from one remote server to another without having to go via your location. It is particularly useful if you work in a library or some similar place where you cannot use a FTP utility such as FTP Navigator, WS_FTP or Terrapin.
