Electronic Mail—The Modern Postal Service
Industrial Management & Data Systems
Article publication date: 1 November 1985
Electronic mail (E‐mail) is simply a means of transmitting the written word (and even graphics and charts) via the telephone line. It readily combines the best features of the telephone and traditional mail service, enabling instant communication with other E‐mail subscribers, both efficiently and inexpensively. A thorough review of terminals and modems available, private viewdata systems, and electronic mail systems (including customised versions) concludes that the most suitable electronic mail system for any individual situation will be ascertained through a review of the user's objectives, the type of people who will be accessing the information, and the type of information submitted and retrieved.
