UUCP or ETRN E-mail Store And Forward
Rates & Services
UUCP stands for Unix-to-Unix Copy Program. It works over a normal ASCII dial-up connection and was the common method of moving e-mail and Usenet News around before the Internet existed. It is still sometimes used to move e-mail between machines which do not have Internet connectivity. It is a store-and-forward protocol so it works with systems that are only intermittantly connected to each other.
ETRN verses UUCP
ETRN is a more modern and preferred approach to handling e-mail for sites which have intermittent Internet connectivity. UUCP uses an ASCII dial connection, ETRN uses a TCP/IP connection. All of our dial access numbers are capable of TCP/IP. Only a small portion are capable of ASCII onnections. If you want UUCP and are not local to an area where we have a line which will support UUCP, you can connect to one of our UUCP capable lines outside of your local calling area if you are willing to accept the long distance charges.
Rates and Conditions
