|Why am I giving you
an article on e-mail Only? To show the E-mail-only
user how to make the most of the Internet.
According to some
estimates, in 2003, 48 million US and Canadian
users use e-mail. That number has of course doubled.
(MORE LIKE GROWN BY A FACTOR OF 100!) Other
that 15 million global Internet users access the
Internet exclusively by
e-mail. If 100 mil Americans use it, time for you to
get a computer, surf
the net and do EMAIL too. My Only fault in logic here
is that HOW WOULD
YOU BE READING this if you didn't have a computer and
could read EMAIL!
Anyway, the MAN WHO WROTE the text below is a retired IBM mainframe systems programmer by profession, a dedicated Internet searcher by design and a retired part-time community college teacher. He seems to be gone now, doesn't answer his addie so I don't give it. His last words: " As of July 2003 I'm more interested in bicycling and enjoying the good-life in retirement rather than spending time on e-mail only related pursuits." ? I guess he's out cycling the heavenly fields but some of his references still work. I know, I did link checker on this piece in 2012.
I used to answer a lot of questions on various lists (ACCMAIL, NETTRAIN, HELP-NET, and PCWORKS which I couldn't google but you can try... that I am subscribed to, some of which are cataloged at Google Groups
I was the owner and moderator of the ACCMAIL mailing list from October 1997 until June 2002. I was also the Accessing The Internet by E-mail FAQ maintainer from January 1999 until August 2003. Consequently, my web pages are dedicated to e-mail only users and show how to use e-mail to do just about everything.

This page is setup such that many of my favorite sites, search engines (How do you think I find all the answers?) and interests are linked via words and phrases found throughout this document.
You will also notice the absence of graphics at this site as well as the long length of each web page. There are three main reasons for this:
