This is your official welcome to CSNET. We are glad to have you aboard.
I gather that you and Dan were able to talk about some of the details
of your implementation at the Paris conference. Dan also said you are
interested in CSNET paraphernalia (like t-shirts). If I can come up with
some stickers (abaout the only thing we have), I will send them.
I am going to send you some informational messages about using CSNET,
including aboput formatting addresses, using the Name Server, and finding
the way around the Internet. Please let us know if you have any questions.
Because some sites act as forwarders or have other internal concerns,
we ask new sites to confirm that they are ready before we announce them
up to the rest of CSNET. In your case, I would also like to include some
information about DFN in the announcement (what hosts are on it, how
to reach them via your host). From your recent message, it looks asthough
your VAX is the only machine able to send and receive CSNET mail.
For the announcement I will also want to be sure that the information
on the site sheet is correct and complete. We show the following for you:
administrative liaison W. Zorn (zorn@germany)
technical liaison Michael Rotert (rotert@germany)
official name germany
aliases karlsruhe, uka, dfn
Let me know how you like to handle the announcement.
