The Whole Internet... By E-Mail, by "Dr. Bob" Rankin, is a comprehensive guide for using e-mail to access all types of Internet sites. The guide provides examples of e-mail access to information available on FTP, Gopher, WWW, Usenet, WAIS, Listserv, Finger, and "Directory Assistance" (Whois and Netfind) sites.

If a user lacks full Internet connectivity but wishes to take advantage of the complete array of Internet resources, this guide is for her or him. It also provides instructions for accessing several miscellaneous Internet information sources via e-mail, including dictionary lookup, sending a fax, sources of U.S. government information, Internet patent news service, currency conversion, virus protection software, and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) by area code.

The Whole Internet...By E-Mail has been translated into more than 25 languages. Foreign language access instructions are included in the guide.
