# INTRODUCTION
#
# This file documents methods of sending mail from one network to another.
# It represents the aggregate knowledge of the readers of comp.mail.misc
# and many contributors elsewhere. If you know of any corrections or
# additions to this file, please follow the instructions in the section
# entitled 'HOW TO FORMAT INFORMATION FOR SUBMISSION' and then mail the
# information to me: John J. Chew . If
# you do not have access to electronic mail (which makes me wonder about
# the nature of your interest in the subject, but there does seem to be
# a small such population out there) you can call me between 14:30 and
# 19:00 MET (currently UTC+2h) at +33 1 46 40 10 60, or fax me (at any time)
# at +33 1 46 40 18 44. Please note that these telephone numbers will remain
# valid only until the end of July 1992.
#
# DISTRIBUTION
#
# (news) This list is posted monthly to Usenet newsgroups comp.mail.misc and
# news.newusers.questions.
# (mail) I maintain a growing list of subscribers who receive each monthly
# issue by electronic mail, and recommend this to anyone planning to .
# redistribute the list on a regular basis.
# (FTP) Internet users can fetch this guide by anonymous FTP as ~ftp/pub/docs/
# internetwork-mail-guide on FTP.MsState.Edu (130.18.80.11) [Courtesy of
# Frank W. Peters], or as ~ftp/library/network.guide on ariel.unm.edu
# (129.24.8.1) [Courtesy of Art St. George].
# (Listserv) The guide is available by Listserv at LISTSERV@UNMVMA on Bitnet
# or [email protected] on the Internet. To fetch a copy, send a message
# to either address, with an empty subject and a message body consisting of
# the line 'GET NETWORK GUIDE'. [Courtesy of Art St. George]
#
# HOW TO USE THIS GUIDE
#
# This document is meant to be both human-readable and machine-parseable. I
# have an experimental Perl script that performs queries on this document -
# send me e-mail if you would like a copy.
#
# If you just want to browse the guide manually for information, this is what
# you need to know. The guide is organized as a list of entries. Each entry
# tells you how to get from one network to another. Here is what a typical
# entry might look like:
#
# #F mynet
# #T yournet
# #R youraddress
# #C contactaddress
# #I send to 'youraddress@thegateway'
#
# This means that to send mail _f_rom a network called 'mynet' _t_o a
# _r_ecipient address 'youraddress' on a network called 'yournet', you
# should follow the _i_nstructions shown and address your mail to
# 'youraddress@thegateway'. (The quotes are not part of the address
# you should use, and if you see \' between the double quotes, you
# should type just ' when addressing your mail.) If you have trouble
# sending mail, you can try sending mail to 'contactaddress' for help.
#
# Network names are listed together with a brief description of each network,
# before the main entires. The main entries themselves are sorted
# alphabetically, first by source network and then by destination network.
# Network connections that can be generated transitively (A->B and B->C give
# A->B->C) are generally omitted. If you need further information on the
# format, read the following section.
#
# HOW TO PARSE THIS GUIDE
#
# The format of this guide is designed to be a reasonable compromise between
# the automatically parsable and the humanly legible.
#
# As distributed, the guide consists of a sequence of lines of up to eighty
# octets in the range [32,126] representing characters in the ASCII encoding,
# with each line terminated by a newline (decimal 10) character.
#
# Valid lines are either empty or begin with a '#'. Invalid lines should
# be rejected as being part of an encapsulation such as a mail header.
#
# The portion of a non-empty, valid line following the '#' consists of a tag
# and data. The tag is the longest leading string of characters that does not
# contain a space, the data is the portion of the line after the first space
# if any. Leading spaces in the data are ignored, except on continuation lines
# (see below).
#
# Lines tagged with a '-' are continuation lines. If more than eighty
# characters need to be placed in one logical record, the characters should
# be placed in several lines, with all lines after the first tagged with a '-'.
# A (possibly singleton) set of lines will be referred to as a record. A
# record's tag is the tag of its first line.
#
# Records with empty tags (such as these) are comments for human eyes only
# and should in general be silently ignored by an automatic parser.
#
# Records are grouped into blocks, delimited by empty lines. Empty blocks,
# or blocks which contain nothing but comments, should be ignored.
#
# The first block of the file consists of 'V'-tagged records which give
# version information for the file. The format of this information is
# subject to change, and should not be automatically parsed. In this
# edition, the first block is at the very beginning of the file.
#
# The second block of the file consists of 'N'-tagged records which declare
# identifiers to be used in referring to networks in the rest of the file.
# Each such record is divided into ';'-separated fields. The fields are
# currently: identifier, full name, organization, category (academic, bbs,
# commercial, in-house, non-profit, none or ?). Leading and trailing spaces
# in fields should be ignored. In fact, without further ado, here's the
# second block.

#
# After these header blocks come a sequence of connection blocks, describing
# how to get from one network to another. In each such block, the records
# are tagged 'F', 'T', and 'R', followed by an optional 'C', and at least
# one 'I'.
#
# The 'F' (from) record gives the network identifier of the source network.
#
# The 'T' (to) record gives the network identifier of the destination network.
#
# The 'R' (recipient) record gives an example of an address on the
# destination network, to make it clear in subsequent lines what text
# requires subsitution.
#
# The 'C' (contact) record gives an address for inquiries concerning the
# gateway, expressed as an address reachable from the source (#F) network.
# Presumably, if you can't get the gateway to work at all, then knowing
# an unreachable address on another network will not be of great help.
#
# The 'I' (instructions) records, of which there may be several, give verbal
# instructions to a user of the source network to let them send mail
# to a user on the destination network. Text that needs to be typed
# will appear in double quotes, with C-style escapes if necessary. If
# the instructions consist simply of mailing to a certain address, this
# will be indicated by the words 'send to' followed by a quoted address.
# If there are alternative addresses, they will be marked 'or to' instead.
#
# HOW TO FORMAT INFORMATION FOR SUBMISSION
#
# If you don't want to wade through the section on parsing the guide above,
# here is what I really want in the way of information. If you are adding
# a new network to the list, tell me what its official name is (pay attention
# to capitalisation), what the name of its responsible organization is, and
# what kind of a network it is (academic, commercial, government, in-house
# or non-profit). If this isn't clear, look at the examples above. I would
# appreciate it if you would format the entry thus:
#
# #N foonet ; The Foo Network; The Foo Organization; commercial
#
# Next, for each connection, give me an entry that looks something like:
#
# #F foonet
# #T barnet
# #R baraddress
# #C contactaddress
# #I send to 'baraddress@thegateway'
#
# Note that 'contactaddress' must be an address expressed in foonet's native
# format, and not that of barnet, since if a user is having trouble accessing
# barnet, giving him/her an address on that net to contact for help is not
# productive. If there is no contact/postmaster address, please tell me.
# If there are more complicated instructions, use additional #I lines.
#
# Once you've got all the information together, send it to me in an e-mail
# message with the words 'INMG update' in the Subject: line. You can in
# general expect an answer back from me within a week or two, modulo workload
# and vacations.

#I Methods for sending mail from Bitnet to the Internet vary depending on
#- what mail software is running at the Bitnet site in question. In the
#- best case, users should simply be able to send mail to 'user@domain'.
#- If this doesn't work, try 'user%domain@gateway' where 'gateway' is a
#- Bitnet-Internet gateway site nearby. Finally, if neither of these
#- works, you may have to try hand-coding an SMTP envelope for your mail.
#I If you have questions concerning this rather terse note, please try
#- contacting your local postmaster or system administrator first before
#- you send me mail -- John Chew
