>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> NEED ANOTHER MAILBOX? >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Need another mailbox or account on MCI Mail? A SCRIPT called NEWUSER allows you to register new mailboxes or accounts on MCI Mail, or provide a referral for others needing information. To use this feature, at the Command; prompt, type: CREATE USING NEWUSER {ENTER} Answer all questions, and follow the instructions at the end of the SCRIPT. You will be notified when the new mailbox/account is active.

The NEWUSER script has been in use for over two years. Hundreds of new accounts set up with the SCRIPT, have been up and running, usually overnight. Note. . . If you access MCI Mail via Lotus Express, Desktop Express or any of MCI Mail's LINK products, you may send the name, address and phone number of the referral to mailbox 218-0241. We will contact them immediately and arrange for the account or mailbox. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> PRODUCT INFORMATION FORUM >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Businesses in the know sponsor lunchtime vendor forums. These meetings provide an opportunity for the area managers to become familiar with new services and products in a casual setting without taking time off to visit trade shows. Managers and employees get a chance to learn about cost saving technologies used in other areas of the company through informal discussions, and question and answer periods. If you would like to have an MCI Mail representative come to one of your forums, please message us at mailbox 218-0241. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> MCI AND YOUR FAX MACHINE >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> MCI Mail Fax Dispatch offers superb text quality and exceptional ease for computer originated faxes. However, some faxes MUST be sent from a fax machine - original documents with signatures, newsletters composed with desktop publishing software, charts and illustrations, to name a few. MCI Fax Broadcast is the ideal service to help you with those faxing needs. If you are sending a single fax, or broadcasting the fax to 100 recipients, MCI Fax Broadcast provides toll free access, six second incremental billing, custom cover sheets, 24 hours of retries, status and accounting reports and access controls - all from your fax machine. Distribution lists can be stored on MCI (note - MCI Mail Fax Dispatch and MCI Fax Broadcast lists are not interchangeable), and free software is available to help you maintain those lists. There is no registration fee for MCI Fax Broadcast - you pay only for what you send, when you send it. If you are interested in learning more about MCI Fax Broadcast, please e-mail your fax number to mailbox 218-0241. >>>>>>>>>>>> SPRING AHEAD >>>>>>>>>>>> If people are asking why you are working so late, it may be because your 4:30 PM MCI Mail message was time stamped 5:30 PM. No, there is nothing wrong with the clocks at MCI... rather, you need to adjust your time zone from Standard to Daylight time

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> INTRODUCING MCI MAIL GLOBAL ACCESS >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Are you out of touch when traveling overseas? Do your have a foreign office or client that has avoided MCI Mail because of the PTT charges and hassles? Until now, accessing MCI Mail from outside the United States required you to arrange for a separate packet switching (PTT) subscription in each country. The PTT then billed you for both the amount of time spent online and the number of characters sent and received. MCI Mail Global Access simplifies the process. MCI Mail now offers direct access from an initial 27 countries through an in-country telephone call. Additional countries will be added throughout 1992. MCI Mail Global Access service provides a simple, high quality, low-cost alternative to subscription PTT access by providing portability not previously available - simply dial a phone number from your PC in any of the 27 countries listed below - advanced arrangements and hassles are now a thing of the past. Australia Austria Belgium Brazil Denmark Finland France Germany Hong Kong Ireland Italy Japan Korea Luxembourg Mexico Netherlands New Zealand Norway Philippines Portugal Singapore South Africa Spain Sweden Switzerland Taiwan United Kingdom

If you want to access MCI Mail from a country not listed above, you can either dial long distance to a nearby country listed, or still use PTT access

to reach MCI Mail. to come.

More countries will be added later this year and in years

While some countries have "country-wide" numbers available; most have one or more cities where local access is available. In cities where the nearest access number is not a local call, you will call long-distance within the country to the city that does provide the access. Unlike the PTTs which bill in local currency on a time plus volume basis, MCI Mail Global Access costs a simple $.50/minute - billed in half-minute increments after the first minute. Charges for Global Access appear on your monthly MCI Mail invoice along with the standard messaging charges. Global Access speeds and protocols however, the majority of locations MNP 5 error-correction. The access speeds and protocols are available >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> USING MCI MAIL GLOBAL ACCESS >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Instructions for use ==================== Choose the telephone number that is appropriate to the country, city, and modem speed that you wish to use. Unless otherwise noted, the modems on these access numbers support the "CCITT" standards used in much of the world rather than the "Bell" standard used in modems built for use in the United States. This difference is important only if accessing at 300 baud, as the two standards are NOT compatible at that speed. Numbers supporting ONLY CCITT 300 baud are designated "300 CCITT;" most U.S. modems can not be used on them. Numbers designated "MNP4" support the MNP error-correction protocol; numbers designated "MNP5" support both the MNP error-correction and data-compression protocols. Check the documentation supplied with your modem for further details on how to use these protocols. Telephone dialing instructions ============================== Next to each country name is the International Direct Distance Dialing (IDDD) country code. Preceding each access number is the inter-regional city or area code, if applicable. The following rules generally apply in dialing telephone numbers: LOCAL CALLING: Normally does not require the use of the city code. vary somewhat from location to location; support speeds from 300 to 2400 baud with list below indicates exactly what access from any particular access number.

REGIONAL CALLING: Normally requires use of the city code. Some telephone networks require that a 1 or 0 precede the city code. INTERNATIONAL CALLING: Requires an international dialing prefix followed by the IDDD code, city code, and local telephone number. Consult the local telephone company or PTT for additional directions and

explanations in the use of telephone dialing and services. Log-on instructions =================== 1. Dial appropriate local access number and wait for connect. 2. Press {ENTER} twice or until a "#" prompt appears. 3. Type: C and press {ENTER}. (What you type may not appear on your screen.) 4. At the "CENTER:" prompt, type: MCI,MAIL and press {ENTER}. (Again, what you type may not appear on the screen.) 5. You will be accessing MCI Mail when you see the "Please enter your user name:" prompt. Complete your log on by entering your username and password as you normally do. Users of Lotus Express: ====================== If you use Lotus Express to access MCI Mail, you will need to "program" Lotus Express with the above log-on instructions. This is done as follows: A. Type EXPRESS to start up Lotus Express B. At the C: prompt, press {ALT}{SHIFT}X C. Press {ENTER} D. Scroll down to the phone number field and enter the phone number listed below next to the calling city. E. Scroll down to the baud rate field and make sure it matches the speed of the local access number in your calling city. F. Scroll down to the Protocol field and set it to NONE G. Scroll to the Connection String field and enter: @d~~|~~|~~|~~|~~C~|{CENTER:}MCI,MAIL| Users of Crosstalk ================== The below script can be used for logging onto MCI Mail from Crosstalk: WAIT DELAY 10 <----this number will vary based on your local REPLY | set up time for a call WAIT DELAY 2 REPLY | WAIT DELAY 2 REPLY | WAIT DELAY 2 REPLY | WAIT STRING "#" REPLY C| WAIT STRING "CENTER" REPLY MCI,MAIL| WAIT STRING "PLEASE ENTER YOUR USER NAME" REPLY xxxxxxxxxx| <--------replace xxxxxx with your user name

It weighed 84 pounds and was launched from the Baikonue Cosmodrome. It was a simple test payload containing a radio beacon and a thermometer. Latter Sputniks were launched to further investigate outer space and to discover if living organisms could survive space conditions. The Sputniks came as a tremendous shock to the West, which had up to then tended to downgrade Soviet technical capability. Reactions in the United States and Europe, which in some cases bordered on hysteria, initiated the

American drive to send astronauts to the Moon. A lot has changed since then. We are now entering a new period in history, where the Russian and American people can start to build normal societal and commercial relations, without a fear of mutual annihilation. Unfortunately, communications between the two countries is still substandard. Western companies seeking to establish business relationships are hampered by a lack of information on new laws, business regulations, finance, and social changes taking place. The Sputnik Business News - Headlines, a new electronic newsletter published in St. Petersburg, is now available on MCI Mail. It is weekly electronic newsletter with a brief synopsis of new Russian business information and the changes in laws that effect both Russian and Western business. The goal of SBNH is to keep the business community informed on immediate changes that effect business in this ever changing climate, as they happen. Complete text of any article is available for an additional fee on request. If you are interested in learning more about the SBNH, send a note to Sputnik Business News / MCI ID: 511-6359. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> COMING SOON #1: FAX DISPATCH ENHANCEMENTS >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Effective in May, 1992 MCI Mail will be introducing several enhancements to the Fax Dispatch service which will allow you even more flexibility and control over the delivery presentation of their fax messages. These new features include custom page headers, automatic page numbering and cover page suppression. Each feature will be made available to you on an optional basis. PAGE HEADERS - This feature will allow you to send a one line banner which will contain sender, recipient and date/time information. The header can be used with or without a cover page to identify the sender and recipient of the fax message. PAGE NUMBERING - This feature will allow you to optionally select pagination for their Fax Dispatch messages. The page numbers will be placed within the header when requested. COVER PAGE SUPPRESSION - You will have the ability to automatically suppress the generation of the Fax Dispatch cover page. When the no cover page option is selected, you will receive the one line header information mentioned above, unless you instruct to suppress the header also. Details on using these new features will be available in May in the on-line help files, as well as the next issue of the PEN Newsletter. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> COMING SOON #2: EXPANDED INTERNATIONAL COURIER SERVICE >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Beginning also in May, 1992 MCI Mail will support delivery of hardcopy messages via international Overnight Letter to approximately 190 countries. This nearly doubles the number of countries to which MCI can now deliver. To check on the availability and pricing of Overnight Letters to a specific country, you can type HELP [country name} at the Command; prompt. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> COMING SOON #3: INTERNATIONAL FAX DISPATCH PRICE DECREASE >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> On May 1, 1992 MCI will lower its Fax Dispatch rates to 16 popular international countries. The price reductions vary from 9% to 30%. This is based on an average 2 page Fax Dispatch message (with cover page).

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> LAN ACCESS TO MCI MAIL >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> This might look familiar to some of you. ===================================================================== TO: Smith There is more than one: No. MCI ID Name Organization Location 0 NOT LISTED BELOW. DELETE. 1 NOT LISTED BELOW. ENTER AN ADDRESS. 2 123-4567 Alan Smith Smith & Associa Luther, MT 3 321-4567 Deborah L. Smith ABC West Boise, ID 4 REMOTE 523-1234 Don L. Smith Atlanta,GA ===================================================================== Have you ever wondered why some mailboxes are marked REMOTE? Contrary to

some opinions, REMOTE people do not live far away, nor do they have trouble making friends. The word REMOTE denotes the mailbox as an ONR (Off Net Registrant) - someone accessing MCI Mail from a LAN (local area network), or a mini or mainframe computer. A typical LAN user (the exact same rules apply to mini and mainframe computers) is able to send messages to other people connected to the LAN using a terminal to terminal electronic mail system. Within the LAN, each user has a unique username or ID. This allows a LAN user to route a message to the proper terminal. This scheme does not however provide for any access to the "outside" world -no faxing, telexing, external electronic mail, etc. is available from within the LAN. These services are however available MCI Mail. Although it would be possible to provide each LAN user with their own modem and phone line, a far simpler and less expensive route is to provide a single modem and phone line on the LAN for all users to share. With the proper gateway software, the LAN communications server can be made to call MCI Mail periodically to upload and download messages for the LAN users. An unlimited number of LAN users can be accommodated through a special type of mailbox called a REMS (Remote Electronic Mail System) account. Once the REMS account is in place, if you wanted to send a message to Don L. Smith, you would not only need to know the ID of the REMS account, but you would also need to know Dons user name or ID as it is known to the LANs internal electronic mail. A typical address might be: To: Don L. Smith (ems) EMS: 543-5432 <-REMS account ID MBX: DLSMITH <-user name on the LAN Although you could probably remember Dons address if it were this simple, his address could be a great deal more complicated. If he were instead attached to a mini computer that was itself connected to the LAN, he might have a far more complicated address, possibly: To: Don L. Smith (ems) EMS: 543-5432 MBX: DLSMITH@PDP11@SYSOP There is nothing easy (or obvious) about this address. To make life simple for people needing to send electronic mail to Don, he might choose to store the EMS and MBX addressing information in the MCI Mail directory itself by ordering an ONR mailbox. An ONR is not a true mailbox - it has no password per se. It only serves as a pointer to a mailbox on the LAN. Don can not log into the ONR - he must send and receive his mail from the LAN. If an MCI Mail subscriber wanted to send a message to Don, he need only enter DSMITH or 523-1234 (the user name or MCI ID assigned to the ONR). MCI Mail would then have sufficient information to route the message through the REMS account to the LAN or mini mailbox location.

As more personal computers are connected to LANS, more LANS are connecting to MCI Mail. If you are planning to install a LAN at your location, plan to provide a gateway to MCI Mail. All of the messaging features (e-mail, fax, telex and hardcopy) will be available to the LAN users through a single modem and phone line. Use of the gateway requires a REMS account, costing only $100 to support an unlimited number of workstations. ONRs are $10 per year. Please message us at mailbox 218-0241 for more information about any of these gateways, or for assistance with REMS and ONR registrations.
