Publisher SummaryThis chapter introduces the OpenVMS e-mail facility. In the early days of OpenVMS, the mail facility could send messages only to users on the local node or on a DECnet network, but it has since been enhanced to allow messages to be sent to or received from any Internet e-mail address. There are two ways to use OpenVMS mail. One is to use the MAIL facility directly on the OpenVMS system, either through a text interface or through the GUI. The other method is to use the OpenVMS computer system as an e-mail server for separate client systems, such as personal computers. The chapter describes both the approaches and also describes the traditional terminal-based interface to OpenVMS MAIL. Terminal interface allows user to send messages to and receive messages from other OpenVMS users on the DECnet network.
