Receiving messages from the Internet and other commercial services

To receive mail from someone on the Internet, you should instruct senders to address their messages to you as follows:
[email protected]
Note that you must replace the comma in your ID number with a period. Therefore, because my CompuServe user ID is 73207,2013, my mail should be addressed as follows: [email protected]

Also note that this format must be used when a member of another online service (America
Online, Prodigy, and so on) sends mail to you on CompuServe. Remember, the commercial services don’t talk directly to one another and must use the Internet as a go-between.

organization. domain is referred to as the domain address. Typically, the domain address identifies the user’s Internet service providers. (For example, my Internet service is provided through my employer, Macmillan Computer Publishing—MCP, for short—and its domain address is mcp.com.) A domain address can have more than two parts

and more than one period. For example, the domain address for the CIX service is cix.compulink.co.uk.

Using my Internet address as an example, to send an e-mail message from CompuServe to me on the Net, you would use the following address:

INTERNET: [email protected] In practice, you’ll have your recipient’s entire Internet address in front of you, and you really won’t need to worry about which part is the username and which is the domain address. Just add INTERNET: to the front of the Internet address, and CompuServe Mail does the rest.
