Getty email system

From: Walter Henry <whenry>
Date: Sunday, April 25, 1993
Some time ago I provided some instructions for sending mail to people on
the Getty Conservation Institute's email service (GEMDES).  A new
address format has been announced.

Most of you use this form:

  /c=ca/admd=telecom.canada/o=gemdes/ddt=id/ddv=GEMDESID/ [at] gemdes__carleton__ca

But some of you may need to do this:

where "GEMDESID" is the recipients Gemdes User ID.

(for both, the whole thing must be on one line, and for some of you, the
"/" may cause some confusion and you will have to 'escape' them (eg, for
unix users using csh, you would put a "\" before each "/")

Please remember to get your recipient's permission before sending them
significant quantities of mail, because they pay exorbitant fees to
read mail.

GCI also announced that they are testing an Internet connection to the
CHIN databases (ie GCI members will be able to connect to the CHIN
databases via the Internet, avoiding Tymnet, Datapac, etc.).  They also
announced that a new mail system, called Express, will replace GEMDES
Real Soon Now.  There was no mention of whether or not the fee structure
will change (one can only hope)
