As a result of discussions at the INET93 Developing Countries Workshop two weeks
ago, I am now running a mail server which accesses the web. Many people have onl
email right now, especially developing countries, so this is a mechanism to let
them read the documents.

Details are in the <a href="http://curia.ucc.ie/info/webmail/webmail.html">help
file</a>, and Tim/Lou/Marc/etc may wish to add a pointer to this in their entry-
point documentation.

Basically, send a 1-line mail to webmail@curia.ucc.ie containing

     GO <url>

where <url> is the URL you want to retrieve. This is alpha, so please test it. C
   omments/suggestions to me.
