and select:

 -->  5.  Computational Molecular Biology- programs, documents, help/
  -->  3.  Help documents for various Internet resources for Biology/
   -->  27. List of molecular biology email servers.

Or use the Jughead utility on megagopher:

 -->  2.  Search all MegaGopher menus using jughead <?>
