3. Note to new Internet users

Most Internet providers will setup a POP account on their server for you. You will have to connect once in a while to grab your mail. In this case sendmail and UUCP shine. Ask your provider for a UUCP account also. This is especially true if you are part of a small organization. This will provide a personal account on your server for everyone in your group and your computer will forward/receive email to/from your provider.

Of course, nothing beats a permanent connection on the Internet...
