In a previous article, rrumpf at magnus.acs.ohio-state.edu (Robert Rumpf) says:

NCBI has announced a CDrom based genbank distribution for cheap.. $50-$60
they have a package that is called entrez that contains the mac and pc
search software for that price.
Ask for a mailing from NCBI (202) 738-3238 (the fax number for orders
is 202 512-2233)
Or contact Dennis Benson via Email (benson at ncbi.nlm.nih.gov)
NCBI also offers a retrieve service via email that is more up to date than
a cdrom could ever be. It's a little clunky now, but improving. For help,
Email retrieve at ncbi.nlm.nih.gov with the word <help> in the body of the message.
