May be more links to wikipedia articles like this ones. Info here is good, but I like to read more. Its there, but I do not know how is named...

local refs[edit]

Outside of Business[edit]

I don't think this section makes much sense. The point seems to be that different people use email for different purposes. The one reference doesn't really have much to do with email.

I agree. Barte (talk) 14:45, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

Were "at" and "@" both used?[edit]

The standard story states that Ray T sent the first mail between systems using an "@" in '71 - but years later RFC 733 in '77 - and RFC 805 as late as February '82 both have "host indicator" or "at indicator" defined as either at or @. (It's gone by RFC 821 in August '82). It would be interesting to know if this was ever used in practice. Snori (talk) 15:23, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

What separators were used outside of ARPAnet email?[edit]

ARPAnet, Internet and UUCP e-mail used @ or at, but what about other e-mail systems, e.g., ATS, cc:mail, CMS, CTSS, X.400 Shmuel (Seymour J.) Metz Username:Chatul (talk) 18:18, 9 July 2015 (UTC)
