When you think back at what the internet was originally created for and what it has become, it amazes me at what you can do with the internet. I am going to cover just a few of the services and describe each one in little detail. Email Services- Email is basically sending information from one place to a specific person or place. Just like mailing a letter, just in digital form. First off you will need a email client like Yahoo, Gmail, Microsoft Outlook, etc. When you type up an email you place an address who you want it to go to. Just like a zip code the domain name gives the destination. Each domain name maps a unique IP address, when a message is sent it is received by the email client. The email client will go through its list of users until the unique IP address is found and the message is sent. I believe that standard mail will become obsolete and everything will become digital in one way or another. 1
