==Phrack Inc.== Volume Three, Issue 28, File #4 of 12 Network Miscellany ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ by Taran King June 1, 1989 ACSNET ~~~~~~ Australian Computer Science Network (ACSNET), also known as Oz, has its gateway through the CSNET node munnari.oz.au and if you cannot directly mail to the oz.au domain, try either username%munnari.oz.au@UUNET.UU.NET or munnari!username@UUNET.UU.NET. AT&T MAIL ~~~~~~~~~ AT&T Mail is a mailing service of AT&T, probably what you might call it's MCI-Mail equivalent. It is available on the UUCP network as node name attmail but I've had problems having mail get through. Apparently, it does cost money to mail to this service and the surrounding nodes are not willing to pick up the tab for the ingoing mail, or at least, this has seemingly been the case thus far. I believe, though, that perhaps routing to att!attmail!user would work. AT&T recently announced six new X.400 interconnections between AT&T Mail and electronic mail services in the U.S., Korea, Sweden, Australia, and Finland. In the U.S., AT&T Mail is now interconnected with Telenet Communications Corporation's service, Telemail, allowing users of both services to exchange messages easily. With the addition of these interconnections, the AT&T Mail Gateway 400 Service allows AT&T Mail subscribers to exchange messages with users of the following electronic messaging systems: Company E-Mail Name* Country ------- ------------ ------- TeleDelta TeDe 400 Sweden OTC MPS400 Australia Telecom-Canada Envoy100 Canada DACOM DACOM MHS Korea P&T-Tele MailNet 400 Finland Helsinki Telephone Co. ELISA Finland Dialcom Dialcom USA Telenet Telemail USA KDD Messavia Japan Transpac ATLAS400 France The interconnections are based on the X.400 standard, a set of guidelines for the format, delivery and receipt of electronic messages recommended by an international standards committee the CCITT. International X.400 messages incur a surcharge. They are: To Canada: Per note: $.05 Per message unit: $.10 To other international locations: Per note: $.20 Per message unit: $.50 There is no surcharge for X.400 messages within the U.S. The following are contacts to speak with about mailing through these mentioned networks. Other questions can be directed through AT&T Mail's toll-free number, 1-800-624-5672.

An important note: The only requirement for using this mail gateway is that the work conducted must be DARPA sponsored research and other approved government business. Basically, this means that unless you've got some government-related business, you're not supposed to be using this gateway. Regardless, it would be very difficult for them to screen everything that goes through their gateway. Before I understood the requirements of this gateway, I was sending to a user of MCI-Mail and was not contacted about any problems with that communication. Unfortunately, I mistyped the MCI-Mail address on one of the letters and that letter ended up getting read by system administrators who then informed me that I was not to be using that system, as well as the fact that they would like to bill me for using it. That was an interesting thought on their part anyway, but do note that using this service does incur charges. The CMR mailbox address in each system corresponds to the label: Telemail: [Intermail/USCISI]TELEMAIL/USA MCI-Mail: Intermail or 107-8239 CompMail: Intermail or CMP0817 NSF-Mail: Intermail or NSF153 USDA-Mail: Intermail or AGS9999 Addressing examples for each e-mail system are as follows: MCIMAIL: 123-4567 seven digit address Everett T. Bowens person's name (must be unique!) COMPMAIL: CMP0123 three letters followed by three or four digits S.Cooper initial, then "." and then last name 134:CMP0123 domain, then ":" and then combination system and account number NSFMAIL: NSF0123 three letters followed by three or four digits A.Phillips initial, then "." and then last name 157:NSF0123 domain, then ":" and then combination system and account number USDAMAIL: AGS0123 three letters followed by three or four digits P.Shifter initial, then "." and then last name 157:AGS0123 domain, then ":" and then combination system and account number TELEMAIL: BARNOC user (directly on Telemail) BARNOC/LODH user/organization (directly on Telemail) [BARNOC/LODH]TELEMAIL/USA [user/organization]system branch/country The following are other Telenet system branches/countries that can be mailed to: TELEMAIL/USA NASAMAIL/USA MAIL/USA TELEMEMO/AUSTRALIA TELECOM/CANADA TOMMAIL/CHILE TMAILUK/GB ITALMAIL/ITALY ATI/JAPAN PIPMAIL/ROC DGC/USA FAAMAIL/USA GSFC/USA GTEMAIL/USA TM11/USA TNET.TELEMAIL/USA USDA/USA Note: OMNET's ScienceNet is on the Telenet system MAIL/USA and to mail to it, the format would be [A.MAILBOX/OMNET]MAIL/USA.

For more information and instructions on how to use CMR, send a message to the user support group at intermail-request@intermail.isi.edu (you'll get basically what I've listed plus maybe a bit more). Please read Chapter 3 of The Future Transcendent Saga (Limbo to Infinity) for specifics on mailing to these destination mailing systems. COMPUSERVE ~~~~~~~~~~ CompuServe is well known for its games and conferences. It does, though, have mailing capability. Now, they have developed their own Internet domain, called COMPUSERVE.COM. It is relatively new and mail can be routed through either TUT.CIS.OHIO-STATE.EDU or NORTHWESTERN.ARPA. Example: user%COMPUSERVE.COM@TUT.CIS.OHIO-STATE.EDU or replace TUT.CIS.OHIO-STATE.EDU with NORTHWESTERN.ARPA). The CompuServe link appears to be a polled UUCP connection at the gateway machine. It is actually managed via a set of shell scripts and a comm utility called xcomm, which operates via command scripts built on the fly by the shell scripts during analysis of what jobs exist to go into and out of CompuServe. CompuServe subscriber accounts of the form 7xxxx,yyyy can be addressed as 7xxxx.yyyy@compuserve.com. CompuServe employees can be addressed by their usernames in the csi.compuserve.com subdomain. CIS subscribers write mail to ">inet:user@host.domain" to mail to users on the Wide-Area Networks, where ">gateway:" is CompuServe's internal gateway access syntax. The gateway generates fully-RFC-compliant headers. To fully extrapolate -- from the CompuServe side, you would use their EasyPlex mail system to send mail to someone in BITNET or the Internet. For example, to send me mail at my Bitnet id, you would address it to: INET:C488869%UMCVMB.BITNET@CUNYVM.CUNY.EDU Or to my Internet id: INET:C488869@UMCVMB.MISSOURI.EDU Now, if you have a BITNET to Internet userid, this is a silly thing to do, since your connect time to CompuServe costs you money. However, you can use this information to let people on CompuServe contact YOU. CompuServe Customer Service says that there is no charge to either receive or send a message to the Internet or BITNET. DASNET ~~~~~~ DASnet is a smaller network that connects to the Wide-Area Networks but charges for their service. DASnet subscribers get charged for both mail to users on other networks AND mail for them from users of other networks. The following is a brief description of DASnet, some of which was taken from their promotional text letter. DASnet allows you to exchange electronic mail with people on more than 20 systems and networks that are interconnected with DASnet. One of the drawbacks, though, is that, after being subscribed to these services, you must then subscribe to DASnet, which is a separate cost. Members of Wide-Area networks can subscribe to DASnet too. Some of the networks and systems reachable through DASnet include the following: ABA/net, ATT Mail, BIX (Byte Information eXchange), DASnet Network, Dialcom, EIES, EasyLink, Envoy 100, FAX, GeoMail, INET, MCI Mail, NWI, PeaceNet/EcoNet, Portal Communications, The Meta Network, The Source, Telemail, ATI's Telemail (Japan), Telex, TWICS (Japan), UNISON, UUCP, The WELL, and Domains (i.e. ".COM" and ".EDU" etc.). New systems are added all of the time. As of the writing of this file, Connect, GoverNET, MacNET, and The American Institute of Physics PI-MAIL are soon to be connected. You can get various accounts on DASnet including: o Corporate Accounts -- If your organization wants more than one individual subscription. o Site Subscriptions -- If you want DASnet to link directly to your organization's electronic mail system. To send e-mail through DASnet, you send the message to the DASnet account on your home system. You receive e-mail at your mailbox, as you do now. On the Wide-Area Networks, you send mail to XB.DAS@STANFORD.BITNET. On the Subject: line, you type the DASnet address in brackets and then the username just outside of them. The real subject can be expressed after the username separated by a "!" (Example: Subject: [0756TK]randy!How's Phrack?). The only disadvantage of using DASnet as opposed to Wide-Area networks is the cost. Subscription costs as of 3/3/89 cost $4.75 per month or $5.75 per month for hosts that are outside of the U.S.A. You are also charged for each message that you send. If you are corresponding with someone who is not a DASnet subscriber, THEIR MAIL TO YOU is billed to your account. The following is an abbreviated cost list for mailing to the different services of DASnet: PARTIAL List DASnet Cost DASnet Cost of Services 1st 1000 Each Add'l 1000 Linked by DASnet (e-mail) Characters Characters: INET, MacNET, PeaceNet, NOTE: 20 lines Unison, UUCP*, Domains, .21 .11 of text is app. e.g. .COM, .EDU* 1000 characters. Dialcom--Any "host" in U.S. .36 .25 Dialcom--Hosts outside U.S. .93 .83 EasyLink (From EasyLink) .21 .11 (To EasyLink) .55 .23 U.S. FAX (internat'l avail.) .79 .37 GeoMail--Any "host" in U.S. .21 .11 GeoMail--Hosts outside U.S. .74 .63 MCI (from MCI) .21 .11 (to MCI) .78 .25 (Paper mail - USA) 2.31 .21 Telemail .36 .25 W.U. Telex--United States 1.79 1.63 (You can also send Telexes outside the U.S.) TWICS--Japan .89 .47 * The charges given here are to the gateway to the network. The DASnet user is not charged for transmission on the network itself. Subscribers to DASnet get a free DASnet Network Directory as well as a listing in the directory, and the ability to order optional DASnet services like auto-porting or DASnet Telex Service which gives you your own Telex number and answerback for $8.40 a month at this time.
