dc.descriptionFor many people in ACP countries, particularly those living in remote rural areas, non-existent or poor and expensive Internet connections are a daily reality. But that doesn´t mean you have to go without all the vital information on the World Wide Web. There is a simple but little known solution to common connectivity problems: web-to-email. Web-to-email is a technology that allows anyone to receive web pages by email. If you are not able to surf the web, but are able to receive email, web-to-email is an effective way to still have access to all the resources on the Internet. And if you do have access to the web, using web-to-email will save you time and money. You don´t have to worry about slow connections or per minute dial-up charges trying to download web pages?you just quickly check your email. You may have wondered why the printed version of ICT Update includes the web addresses of all the projects, documents and organizations it mentions. The reason is that we want to promote the use of web-to-email to enable you to retrieve dozens of relevant online files, a minimum investment in terms of time, effort and money. How does it work? Web-to-email technology uses servers that fetch documents from the web, and send them to you as email messages, either in plain text or HTML. To use the system, simply send an email message addressed to one of the web-to-email servers listed below. Leave the subject line blank. In the body of the email message, type the web address of the page you want to read. In the following example, the message is addressed to www4mail@kabissa.org, a web-to-email server run by Kabissa.org" / Kabissa. The page requested is ICT Update´s homepage, http://ictupdate.cta.int. Your email message should look like this: --------------------------- TO: www4mail@kabissa.org CC: BCC: SUBJECT: --------------------------- GET http://ictupdate.cta.int --------------------------- Simply replace http://ictupdate.cta.int with the address of the web page you want to read. Web-to-email servers The email addresses of the most popular web-to-email servers are listed below. www4mail@kabissa.org www4mail@access.bellanet.org www4mail@wm.ictp.trieste.it www4mail@unganisha.idrc.ca text@PageGetter.com page@grabpage.org wwO127O126w@web2mail.com
