NIC - Electronic Mail


Electronic Mail (better known as E-Mail), "the means to exchange messages electronically", is the most commonly used Network Service. NIC provides different kinds of E-mail services to its users, over NICNET, NIC's satellite based communication network. The different types of e-mail services being provided include SMTP, UUCP and X.400. The NICNET e-mail service is distributed over many mail servers located at different NIC centres. These are inter-linked with each other such that mails can be exchanged amongst all types of services.

The E-mail service is also integrated with a X.500 directory which makes it possible to search for and locate e-mail addresses very easily. It is also possible to send fax messages through E-mail since a gateway is provided for conversion of messages for fax recipients.
