As some ANNELIDA list members have only e-mail access, this item extracted 
from the net "Scout Report" of March 29 may be worth following up. I see it is 
available in various languages too. I know no more. GBR


Network Tools:

"Dr. Bob" Rankin has recently updated "The Whole Internet... By E-Mail," a
comprehensive guide for using email to access all types of Internet sites.
The guide provides examples of email access to information available on
FTP, Gopher, WWW, Usenet, WAIS, Listserv, Finger, and "Directory
Assistance" (Whois and Netfind) sites. If a user lacks full Internet
connectivity but wishes to take advantage of the complete array of Internet
resources, this guide is for them. It also provides instructions for
accessing several miscellaneous Internet information sources via email,
including dictionary lookup, sending a fax, sources of U.S. government
information, Internet patent news service, currency conversion, virus
protection software, and Internet Service Providers by area code. "The
Whole Internet...By E-Mail" has been translated into over 25 languages. 
Foreign language access instructions are in the guide.
