37/ ADTU OLE Summary Electronic mail is the service that is available to people on a local area network or on the global Internet. E-mail does not require the person receiving the mail to be available (logged into the destination computer) at the time of receiving the mail. The header of an e-mail address is where all the important addressing information is kept, along with data about the message itself. The body of the message is, of course, the most important part. Everything you need to say is entered here, and this is what the recipient will be reading. E-mail management covers four key factors that can help you process your e-mail more efficiently at home as well as at the office. Most of the techniques can help you to more efficiently process e-mail and empty your Inbox, even if you use an e-mail application other than Outlook. MIME is a standard for describing different types of information. This was originally meant to be used to specify encoding for different types of information into text. Usenet is basically an electronic bulletin board. It consists of a set of “newsgroups” with names that are classified hierarchically by subject. E-mail provides a mechanism for groups of people who have shared interests to establish and maintain contact. These groups are called mailing lists (lists or short) where there are mailing lists of the members’ e-mail addresses. On the Internet, chatting is talking to other people who are using the Internet at the same time you are. Internet Relay Chat (IRC) allows you to meet online with people of similar interests.
