Electronic Mail System. MAILWAY Training Manual. MAILWAY Reference Manual. MAILWAY Batch Mode Reference Guide.
Designed to introduce new users to the Alaska State Department of Education's electronic mail system, MAILWAY, this manual is divided into two sections. The first explains the functions and components of an electronic mail system and describes the type of equipment needed to use the system, including basics on equipment hook-up. The second part uses practice exercises to show how to use MAILWAY to create, send, and receive messages with a terminal. There is also a troubleshooting section at the end along with a glossary of terms commonly used with MAILWAY. Sample computer commands for use with MAILWAY are included, as well as two separate reference manuals. One deals with the interface of the Electronic Mail System (EMS) with the MAILWAY system, while the other provides information on creating and sending batched messages. Also mentioned is the availability of a videotape, "An Introduction to the Electronic Mail Systems and MAILWAY Operation," which is designed for those who have never used an electronic mail system before. A quick reference card of MAILWAY commands is attached. (JB)
