February 5, 2002CE80N -- Lecture #104 Electronic Mail The first “Killer App”… Allowed users to communicate via computer – asynchronously Modern day GUIs hide original “command line” operation Uses client-server architecture
February 5, 2002CE80N -- Lecture #105 Description Of Functionality Electronic mail systems permit complex communications and interactions. –Send a single message to many recipients –Send a message that includes text, audio, video, or graphics –Send a message to a user on a network outside the Internet –Send a message to which a computer program responds
February 5, 2002CE80N -- Lecture #106 The Best Of All Worlds Networks provide the speed of telephone communication and permanence of postal mail. –Can transfer small notes or large documents Caveat: there are size limitations on email attachments at some sites –Have become extremely popular
February 5, 2002CE80N -- Lecture #107 Each User Has A Mailbox For E- mail Like a post office mailbox, each e-mail mailbox has an address. Any user can send e-mail to another user if they know the mailbox address. Only the owner of the box can open the mailbox – but others can snoop the mail while enroute.
February 5, 2002CE80N -- Lecture #108 Sending An E-mail Message To send e-mail across the Internet, the user: –Runs an e-mail application –Composes and edits a message Adds attachments –Specifies a recipient –Finishes entering the message –Sends the message Hey, where’s the send button?
February 5, 2002CE80N -- Lecture #109 EMAIL Attachments Attachments are not added strictly “as- is” –Must be converted to text only characters for proper operation in mail servers. –Attachments are encoded using a well known method: MIME: (Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions) BinHex: Macintosh systems UUENCODE: Unix systems and PCs
February 5, 2002CE80N -- Lecture #1010 Notification That E-mail Has Arrived A user can configure the e-mail software to: –Print text messages when mail arrives “You’ve got mail” –Play a recording or tone when mail arrives “You’ve got mail!” –Set an icon on the screen –Suppress notification altogether
February 5, 2002CE80N -- Lecture #1011 Reading An E-Mail Message When the e-mail application begins, it: –Tells the user about waiting messages –Gives an initial summary of the mail –Displays the message contents –Allows the user to: Send a reply Leave the message in the inbox Save the message Delete the message
February 5, 2002CE80N -- Lecture #1012 E-mail Messages Look Like Interoffice Memos An e-mail message begins with a header: From: To: Date: Subject :
February 5, 2002CE80N -- Lecture #1013 E-mail Software Fills In Header Information User-friendly software hides unnecessary header lines when displaying an e-mail message. See the example below: Received: from amazon.com ([126.96.36.199]) by company1.com with Microsoft SMTPSVC(5.5.1877.447.44); Sat, 3 Jun 2000 12:14:03 -1000 Received: by amazon.com id OAA04950; Sat, 3 Jun 2000 14:28:33 -0700 (PDT) Date: Sat, 3 Jun 2000 14:28:33 -0700 (PDT) Message-Id: X-AMAZON-TRACK: email@example.com X-AMAZON-TRACK-2: fathers-day-4 MIME-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: multipart/alternative; boundary=amazon From: Amazon.com Subject: Save $25 at Amazon.com's New Tools & Hardware Store To: firstname.lastname@example.org Return-Path: email@example.com
February 5, 2002CE80N -- Lecture #1014 How E-mail Works E-mail systems follow the client server approach. –Cooperate to send an email message From sender to recipient’s mailbox Sender’s computer is the client –Contacts an e-mail server program on the recipient’s computer –Stores the message in the recipient’s mailbox
Figure 20.1 Figure 20.1 An e-mail transfer across the Internet requires two programs: a client on the sender’s computer and a server on the recipient’s computer.
February 5, 2002CE80N -- Lecture #1016 Using E-mail From A Personal Computer Most personal computers do not receive e-mail directly. –Arrange to have a mailbox on a large computer (I.e, at the ISP) –Contacts the main computer system Mail program: Eudora, Netscape, etc… –Obtains a copy of their mailbox
February 5, 2002CE80N -- Lecture #1017 EMAIL remote operation w/PCs Mail Server A Mail Server B Sender A Recipient B
February 5, 2002CE80N -- Lecture #1018 Mailbox Address Format Addresses consist of a string of characters separated by the “@”. firstname.lastname@example.org The prefix: –identifies the user. The suffix: – gives the domain name of the computer on which the user’s mailbox resides.
February 5, 2002CE80N -- Lecture #1019 Abbreviations Make E-mail Friendly Most e-mail systems allow a user to define abbreviations for the mailbox address. For example: venus.engineering.somecompany.com Becomes eng Allowing the address of jane@eng jane@eng (Instead of email@example.com)
February 5, 2002CE80N -- Lecture #1020 Aliases Permit Arbitrary Abbreviations Most commercially available software supports an e-mail alias. –Requires the user to prepare a list of aliases –Translates the alias to a longer e-mail address ‘mary’ can be used in place of: –firstname.lastname@example.org
February 5, 2002CE80N -- Lecture #1021 Aliases Shared By All Users Of A Computer System System-wide aliases make it possible for all users to share abbreviations. –Consider these: Webmaster Listmanager Help Printers
February 5, 2002CE80N -- Lecture #1022 Sending To Multiple Recipients E-mail systems allow users to send messages to multiple recipients. –Specify multiple mailbox addresses on the ‘To’ line of message For example: –To: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org@email@example.com
February 5, 2002CE80N -- Lecture #1023 Mailing List: An Alias for Multiple Recipients A mailing list is an e-mail alias that specifies multiple recipients The system: –Sends a message to the alias –Delivers a copy to each recipient on the list
February 5, 2002CE80N -- Lecture #1024 Public Mailing Lists And Mail Exploders A public list permits a user on any computer connected to the Internet to send a message to a list of recipients. When the e-mail message reaches the destination computer, an exploder: –Finds the name –Expands the abbreviation –Forwards a copy to each recipient
Figure 20.2 Figure 20.2 The path of a mail message sent to a public mailing list that contains three recipients. A Mail exploder retrieves the message, and forwards a copy to each recipient on the list.
February 5, 2002CE80N -- Lecture #1026 E-mail To And From Non- Internet Sites E-mail can be forwarded to other networks. For example, Compuserve: –Does not use the same Internet protocols –Uses software on an intermediate computer to send and receive Internet e-mail
February 5, 2002CE80N -- Lecture #1027 Access To Services Via E-mail A computer program can: –Be used to answer and reply to an e- mail message. An e-mail message can: –Be used to provide access to a variety of remote services.
February 5, 2002CE80N -- Lecture #1028 Speed, Reliability, And Expectations E-mail systems are more reliable than postal mail systems. –Delivery is usually within minutes –Sender is notified if a message cannot be delivered Not all homes have computers connected to the Internet. Differences in expectations can make e- mail frustrating. –Not all users read their email at the same rate
February 5, 2002CE80N -- Lecture #1029 Impact And Significance Of Electronic Mail After using it, email benefits become apparent. –Combines benefits of instantaneous communication with freedom from interruption –Provides a way for groups to share common interests –Can communicate with more people
February 5, 2002CE80N -- Lecture #1030 Joining A Mailing List To join a list, the user must send a request via e-mail. The request is not sent to the list but to a second alias used for joining or leaving a list. –To join: firstname.lastname@example.org@cinema.org –Email to: email@example.com@cinema.org
February 5, 2002CE80N -- Lecture #1032 Glossary Electronic Mail –(Email) A service that permits one to send a memo to another person, a group, or a computer program. Mail Alias –A synonym for email alias.
February 5, 2002CE80N -- Lecture #1033 Glossary Mailbox –A storage area, usually on disk, that holds incoming e-mail messages until a user reads the mail. Mailbox Address –A synonym for e-mail address.
February 5, 2002CE80N -- Lecture #1034 Glossary Mailing List –An electronic mail address that includes a list of recipients. Postmaster –By convention, an e-mail alias for the person who manage the electronic mail software on a given computer.
February 5, 2002CE80N -- Lecture #1035 Glossary Smiley –A sequence of characters, usually found in an e-mail message, that indicates humorous intent. The three character sequence :-) resembles a smiling face turned sideways. POP –Abbreviation for Post Office Protocol.
