Elm-A New Electronic Mail Service

DCCS announces the start of another retail electronic mail service offering, effective January 1, 1993. The service is based on Elm, the standard electronic mail package which was selected last year by the Electronic Mail Task Force for use by many of the Schools. (See the September 1992 Penn Printout for background information regarding the selection of Elm.)

Elm is a terminal-based package which is simple to learn and use, and which can be accessed by any workstation on campus via PennNet or from home via modem.

The service costs $100 per year and is available to members of any School or Department that authorizes the account and arranges for payment through the University accounting system.

For more information, please see PennInfo in the "Electronic Mail References" section, where the latest details will be posted. For specific questions or to open an account, contact the PennNet Services Center (psc@dccs or Ext. 8-8171).
