If you know a user's email address, then that is basically all you
     need.  The mail readers most users prefer here are elm and pine.

     You can send email from within a mail reader, or directly from the
     UNIX shell with the mail or mailx commands.
     Say you wanted to EMAIL a person named "Bill Gosper".

         $ mail rwg@MC.AI.MIT.EDU

     Where rwg@MC.AI.MIT.EDU is "Bill's" ARPANET email address.
     When you are done with your message to "Bill", just type a "."
     on a single line and then return.

     Your email address is login@SDF.LONESTAR.ORG where "login" is the
     name you use to login to the system.

     You can use the local email clients from the shell or use the
     POP3 protocol to retrieve your email from 'mail.freeshell.org'

     Please note that you can not, however, use sdf.lonestar.org
     as an outgoing SMTP server without prior arrangements. The reason
     why is that spammers would take advantage of the open SMTP server
     here and cause alot of problems.  The best reason that I can think
     of to use sdf's SMTP server is if you are sitting on a local area
     network with a static IP address and the mail server on that LAN 
     is always down.  Then, arrangements could be made so you could use
     SDF as your SMTP server.  Send your IP address to smj@sdf.lonestar.org


     Forwarding mail can be very helpful if you want to give people your
     FreeShell.ORG address but want to have it sent elsewhere.  Just create
     a file called ".forward" in your home directory with the address you
     want your mail forwarded to.  When you want to end forwarding,
     rm .forward


         $ echo "joe@joeuser.com" > $HOME/.forward

     If you are going on holiday and you want people to get an automatic
     reply to messages sent to you, type "vacation" .. you will be thrown
     into an editor where you can customise your reply messages.  When you
     return, again, rm .forward 


     SDF does not condone the sending of UCE (Unsolicited Commercial Email),
     threats, sexual solicitations and other annoyances via our systems.  Any
     accounts found doing this will be promptly terminated without notice.

     The maximum number of recipients allowed is 20, which is a very liberal
     amount.  If you need to send to more than 20 people, you'd better have
     a good reason and you might think about getting a MLIST (Mailing LIST)
