Mail at NRC

Officially, NRC employees use the central Microsoft Exchange service offered by the Messenging Group of the Information Management Services Branch (IMSB) based at M-60. That mail system is based on MS Windows Operating System.

Many researchers still prefer to have their mail delivered to a linux/UNIX mail server instead, and use their own mail client to access their mail. GUI-based mail clients used to access their linux/UNIX mail include Netscape, MS Outlook and Eudora. ASCII-based mail clients include BSD Mail, ELM and PINE.

This chapter will cover generic mail concepts, then will go on to describe some of those concepts within the BSD, ELM and PINE mail interfaces.
