VERSION: $Date: 2/28/97 $ * INTER-NETWORK MAIL GUIDE: Last Update: 2/28/97 * Further mods (C) Copyright 1997 Scott Yanoff (yanoff@alumni.cs.uwm.edu) (Inter-Network Mail Guide - Original Copyright (C) 1992 by John J. Chew) This guide is available via anonymous ftp to: ftp.csd.uwm.edu Also via WWW/Mosaic, URL is: http://alpha.acast.nova.edu/cgi-bin/inmgq.pl INTRODUCTION This file documents methods of sending mail from one network to another. It represents the aggregate knowledge of the readers of comp.mail.misc and many contributors elsewhere. If you know of any corrections or additions to this file, please follow the instructions in the section entitled 'HOW TO FORMAT INFORMATION FOR SUBMISSION' and then mail the information to me: Scott A. Yanoff <yanoff@alpha2.csd.uwm.edu>. HOW TO USE THIS GUIDE If you just want to browse the guide manually for information, this is what you need to know. The guide is organized as a list of entries. Each entry tells you how to get from one network to another. Here is what a typical entry might look like: FROM: mynet TO: yournet RECIPIENT: youraddress CONTACT: contactaddress INSTR: send to 'youraddress@thegateway' This means that to send mail FROM a network called 'mynet' TO a RECIPIENT address 'youraddress' on a network called 'yournet', you should follow the INSTRUCTIONS shown and address your mail to 'youraddress@thegateway'.

The 'CONTACT' record gives an address for inquiries concerning the gateway, expressed as an address reachable from the source (#FROM:) network. Presumably, if you can't get the gateway to work at all, then knowing an unreachable address on another network will not be of great help. The 'INSTR' records, of which there may be several, give verbal instructions to a user of the source network to let them send mail to a user on the destination network. Text that needs to be typed will appear in double quotes, with C-style escapes if necessary. If the instructions consist simply of mailing to a certain address, this will be indicated by the words 'send to' followed by a quoted address. If there are alternative addresses, they will be marked 'or to' instead. HOW TO FORMAT INFORMATION FOR SUBMISSION Here is what I really want in the way of information. If you are adding a new network to the list, tell me what its official name is (pay attention to capitalization), what the name of its responsible organization is, and what kind of a network it is (academic, commercial, government, in-house or non-profit). If this isn't clear, look at the examples above. For each connection, give me an entry that looks something like: FROM: foonet TO: barnet RECIPIENT: baraddress CONTACT: contactaddress INSTR: send to 'baraddress@thegateway' Note that 'contactaddress' must be an address expressed in foonet's native format, and not that of barnet, since if a user is having trouble accessing barnet, giving him/her an address on that net to contact for help is not productive. If there is no contact/postmaster address, please tell me. If there are more complicated instructions, use additional #INSTR: lines. Once you've got all the information together, send it to me in an e-mail message with the words 'INMG update' in the Subject: line. You can in general expect an answer back from me within a week. FROM: aol TO: applelink RECIPIENT: user CONTACT: Internet INSTR: send to 'user@applelink' FROM: aol TO: compuserve RECIPIENT: 71234,567 CONTACT: Internet INSTR: send to '71234.567@cis' FROM: aol TO: genie RECIPIENT: user CONTACT: Internet INSTR: send to 'user@genie' FROM: aol TO: internet RECIPIENT: user@domain CONTACT: Internet INSTR: send to 'user@domain' FROM: applelink TO: bitnet RECIPIENT: user@site INSTR: send to 'user@site.bitnet@internet#' FROM: applelink TO: internet RECIPIENT: user@domain INSTR: send to 'user@domain@internet#' (address must be < 35 characters) FROM: arcom TO: internet RECIPIENT: G=test; S=user; O=organization; A=arcom; C=ch; CONTACT: postmaster@switch.ch INSTR: send to - '/G=test/S=user/O=organization/P=switch/A=arcom/C=ch/@chx400.switch.ch' INSTR: this should work for all servers connected to switch, INSTR: i.e. all universities, federal agencies etc. FROM: att TO: bitnet RECIPIENT: user@site INSTR: send to 'internet!site.bitnet!user' FROM: att TO: internet RECIPIENT: user@domain INSTR: send to 'internet!domain!user' FROM: bitnet TO: ibm RECIPIENT: USER at VMNODE or (VMNODE)USER <- this is the internal syntax CONTACT: nic@vnet INSTR: send to 'useralias@vnet' INSTR: Both sender and receiver have to be registred for bitnet gateway use.

FROM: bitnet TO: internet RECIPIENT: user@domain INSTR: Methods for sending mail from Bitnet to the Internet vary depending on - what mail software is running at the Bitnet site in question. In the - best case, users should simply be able to send mail to 'user@domain'. - If this doesn't work, try 'user%domain@gateway' where 'gateway' is a - Bitnet-Internet gateway site nearby. Finally, if neither of these - works, you may have to try hand-coding an SMTP envelope for your mail.
