This list is current as of 04 April 1991, I think (but then,
one never knows: things change so rapidly).

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 read the file format documentation below
and then mail 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 during the month of
July at +1 416 979 7166 between 11:00 and 24:00 EDT (UTC-4h) and most
likely talk to my answering machine (:-).

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 Ra.MsState.Edu (130.18.80.10 or 130.18.96.37)
[Courtesy of Frank W. Peters]
(Listserv) Bitnet users can fetch this guide from the Listserv at UNMVM.

the line "GET NETWORK GUIDE". [Courtesy of Art St. George]

HOW TO USE THIS GUIDE

Each entry in this file describes how to get from one network to another.
To keep this file at a reasonable size, methods that can be generated by
transitivity (A->B and B->C gives A->B->C) are omitted. Entries are sorted
first by source network and then by destination network. This is what a
typical entry looks like:

#F mynet
#T yournet
#R youraddress
#C contact address if any
#I send to "[email protected]"

For parsing purposes, entries are separated by at least one blank line,
and each line of an entry begins with a `#' followed by a letter. Lines
beginning with `# ' are comments and need not be parsed. Lines which do
not start with a `#' at all should be ignored as they are probably mail
or news headers.

#F (from) and #T (to) lines specify source and destination networks.
If you're sending me information about a new network, please give me
a brief description of the network so that I can add it to the list
below. The abbreviated network names used in #F and #T lines should
consist only of the characters a-z, 0-9 and `-' unless someone can
make a very convincing case for their favourite pi character.

These are the currently known networks with abbreviated names:

applelink AppleLink (Apple Computer, Inc.'s in-house network)
attmailAT&T Mail,AT&T's commercial e-mail service.
bitnet international academic network
bix Byte Information eXchange: Byte magazine's commercial BBS
bmug Berkeley Macintosh Users Group
compuserve commercial time-sharing service
connect Connect Professional Information Network (commercial)
easynet Easynet (DEC's in-house mail system)
envoy Envoy-100 (Canadian commercial mail service)
fax Facsimile document transmission
fidonet PC-based BBS network
geonet GeoNet Mailbox Systems (commercial)
internet the Internet
mci MCI's commercial electronic mail service
mfenet Magnetic Fusion Energy Network
nasamail NASA internal electronic mail
peacenet non-profit mail service
sinet Schlumberger Information NETwork
span Space Physics Analysis Network (includes HEPnet)
sprintmail Sprint's commercial mail service (formerly Telemail)
thenet Texas Higher Education Network

#R (recipient) gives an example of an address on the destination network,
to make it clear in subsequent lines what text requires subsitution.

#C (contact) 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.

#I (instructions) lines, 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.

#I works, you may have to try hand-coding an SMTP envelope for your mail.

PART - II

NETWORKS KNOWN *NOT* TO HAVE ACCESS FROM INTERNET

Compiled by Raymond Chen .

Network Comments (and userids of people who asked about it
and didn't post summaries)
------- ---------------------------------------------------
American Online Masato Ogawa ([email protected]) confirms
that there is no gateway.

British Telecom [email protected] (R Batt) reports that
Gold BT is a member of DialCom (qv).

DialCom The gateway was shut down in March 1990 for financial
reasons. Individual customers may have established
private relays through the Commercial Mail Relay (CMR).
Information available on the CMR is available from
[email protected]

Dialog [email protected] (Dave Mc Mahan) reports that
nobody responded to his query in October 1990.

Easylink a Western Union service
[email protected] (Bruce Hauge) reports that as of March
1991 there is no gateway yet, but they're working on it.

Eurokom [email protected] (Brian Christiansen) reports that
nobody responded to his query in February 1991.

Fidelity Investments [email protected] (Eric Adams) reports that
(Dallas) nobody responded to his query in February 1991.

GEnie No gateway yet, but Bill Louden, the General Manager of
GEnie, has stated publically that they are currently doing
research into the feasibility of a gateway. Trust me,
if such a gateway is set up, you'll hear about it.

By the way, the machine genie.com is a red herring.

GoldNet [email protected] (Chaim Dworkin) reports that
GoldNet is part of DialCom (qv).

HandsNet [email protected] (J. Daniel Ozeran) reports
that nobody responded to his query in January 1991.

Midas Internation headquarters in Chicago
[email protected] (Pete) reports that nobody
responded to his querh in January 1991.

Nifty-Serve a Japanese BBS
[email protected] (Makoto Suzuki) contacted the
system operators and confirmed that there is no gateway.

OMNET Craig E. Ward ([email protected]) explains:

Go either through Sprint Internet relay, Sprint.COM, or through the Commercial
Mail Relay (CMR) at Intermail.ISI.EDU.

Through the CMR, you can send mail to OMNET users with this format:

"[omnet.user/OMNET]MAIL/USA%TELEMAIL"@Intermail.ISI.EDU

Users on OMNET will need to use an embedded header, i.e. in the body of the
message text (almost as ugly as X.400, but not quite) in a message to
"[INTERMAIL/USCISI]SM66/USA" to get mail back to you:

Forward: Internet
To: [email protected]


You can get more information about the Commercial Mail Relay from:

[email protected]

Paranet [email protected] (vacation) 4 Dec 90
No summary has yet been posted, and personal email
to this person is not answered.

PC-Relay [email protected] (Dave Lambert) 21 Feb 91
No summary has yet been posted, and personal email
to Mr Lambert is not answered.

Prodigy by IBM and Sears
censors email
charges the sender of the mail message
Censorship details available from comp.risks issue 10.46.

PROFS (general) PROFS is not a network. It is an electronic office system
that has electronic mail as one of its components. Many
companies purchase it from IBM and install it locally.

PROFS (IBM) [email protected] (Gaby Turek)
reports that you send to [email protected],
but the recipient must first have registered for internet
access.

QUICK-COMM GE Information Services E-Mail
[email protected] (Mahmoud Pegah) reports
that as of February 1991 there is no gateway, though
one is under development.

SABRE American Airlines' in-house reservation network.
[email protected] (Bharat P. Savel) reports that
it has no gateway to any other network, and they
intend to keep it that way.

Telemail [email protected] (Todd Stevens) 20 Feb 91
Use the gateway at sprint.com This requires knowledge of the recipient's
X.400 address on Telenet (now Sprintnet). Your SMTP address will look like
this:

smtp%"/dd.un=username/admd=telemail/o=gte/c=us/@sprint.com"

the username will be the recipient's username on the system and o will be
the organization.

VNET (IBM) [email protected] (Kurt Krueger) 16 Feb 91

Whole Earth 'Lectronic Link (WELL)
[email protected] (David Basiji) reports that
you send mail to [email protected]
