WinNET Mail (TM) is a Windows 3.0/3.1 application for
sending and receiving Electronic Mail with the world-wide
Internet and Usenet networks using just your Windows system
and a modem. The connection with the Internet and Usenet
is provided through Computer Witchcraft's computer
system providing WinNET (SM) service.
COSTS OF USING WinNET MAIL
The WinNET Mail software is provided to you free of charge
for the purpose of connecting with the WinNET system. The
WinNET system is your connection with the Internet and Usenet
networks and usage is billed to you on a connect time
basis. The WinNET connect time charges are billed at the
$8.00 per hour
with a monthly minimum of
$9.95 per month.
There is a per account minimum charge of $9.95. Accounts
created and then ended shortly thereafter will be billed at
Unlike many on-line services and bulletin boards, you are
only connected to WinNET for just long enough to send or
receive any pending E-Mail at speeds as fast as your modem
will go. This results in connection times of typically 1 to
just a few minutes. In our experience, customers average
1.25 hours of connect time per month or just $10.00 in
charges. See TERMS.TXT for full details.
SETTING UP WinNET MAIL ON YOUR SYSTEM
STEP 1. From the Windows program manager File menu, Run
the SETUP.EXE program supplied with the WinNET distribution.
Use the More Information button to get more information on
STEP 2. Run the CWI Account Setup program (ACCOUNT.EXE).
This will ask you for billing and credit card information.
The program will call the Computer Witchcraft WinNET server
and submit your account request. After a one minute
pause, the program will call back to verify that the
account was accepted.
All account requests will be accepted unless the System
Name that you choose under SETUP is already taken by
another WinNET customer. If the account request is not
successful, you will need to re-run SETUP, select a different
System Name, and re-run the account program.
PROBLEMS WITH WinNET SETUP
The most likely source of problems that you may have with
WinNET Mail is the SETUP Communications Parameters:
1. Make sure that the COM port is set to the port that
your modem uses.
2. Make sure that the interface speed it not set faster
than your modem can handle.
3. Verify that the telephone number being dialed will
work correctly from your facility and area.
The telephone number of the WinNET server is:
Which is located in San Francisco, California,
U.S.A. If you are local to San Francisco, use
simply 752-9363. You may also need to add digits
to obtain an outside line or for credit card
You can verify that these settings work for your system by
using the Windows Terminal program. You can also check that
the modem strings supplied on the Communications Parameters
screen work with you modem as well.
