This is slightly out of context. Each of the bionet USENET newsgroups
has a parallel mailing list. There is nothing specifically set up for
the Forest Service. However, if anyone in the Forest Service can
send/receive mail from our host computer on the Internet
(genbank.bio.net) then they can participate in the bionet newsgroups
via e-mail. This does not apply to USENET newsgroups in general.

Only if one of their computers on DECNET also has a link into the
Internet. I don't know the answer to that one.
