Summary

Summary

This handbook provides all the information necessary for anyone to feel comfortable using this electronic form of communication: the basics for beginners, and numerous tips for advanced users. The first part of the book focuses on getting started (finding an Internet Service Provider, computer requirements, and so on) and then provides an entertaining discussion of email procedures, including etiquette do's and don'ts, avoiding spam and viruses, privacy concerns, notes for the handicapped, and observations on email use in libraries. Next is a systematic how-to coverage of eight email systems, including four popular Web-based systems (Hotmail, Mail.com, Netscape Mail, and Yahoo! Mail) and four standalone systems (Eudora, Juno, Netscape Messenger and Outlook Express). The how-to section features straightforward directions and helpful illustrations.
