Electronic mail sure has become popular. Everyone
seems to have an e-mail address on their business cards, messages fly
around offices, and around the world, and the occasional sage predicts
the death of the Post Office. We're not too worried about the Post
Office, but we can't imagine going back to life before
e-mail. It's like life without the telephone.
If you find e-mail a bit mystifying, want to know more ways you can
make e-mail work for you, or have a friend whom you'd like to get on-line,
we've got just the book for you.
