You've Got Mail!: Understanding How E-Mail Works
Roman, Harry T.
Tech Directions, v66 n7 p22-23 Feb 2007
Conceptually, e-mail is not a whole lot different from regular postal mail ("snail mail"), except that it is much faster. E-mail requires three things: (1) a personal computer; (2) a telephone or communication line; and (3) an Internet provider (e-mail service account). This article provides details on how it works--plus some research activities that teachers can share with their students.
