I love e-mails. I am not young enough to only grow up on e-mail, but I am fairly close. E-mails are probably one of the best inventions of the informational age. E-mails have made it so information that before took months to arrive can now arrive in seconds.
WOW! Think about that? And here we are complaining that our e-mail is slow and we don’t understand why an e-mail takes a couple of minutes to arrive. We have really forgotten how lucky we are to have a incredible tool like the possibility to send an e-mail.
Think about it today. Especially with today’s technology junkies that we have become if the internet broke down and the only communication we could have with our loved ones that live far away would be by sending them a letter or telegram as they were also called before if they were express.
What would you do if your e-mail stopped working today and it would never stop working again? How would businesses run in today’s technology addicted business world? We are truly grateful for having that technology and what it means for us. Without being able to send commands to our satellite’s to study our solar system and the universe. Without the ability to send messages electronically we would never have the world we have today.

What is E-mail and how did it come to be?
Electronic mail, commonly called email or e-mail, is a method of exchanging digitalmessages from an author to one or more recipients. Modern email operates across theInternet or other computer networks. Some early email systems required that the author and the recipient both be online at the same time, in common with instant messaging. Today’s email systems are based on a store-and-forward model. Email servers accept, forward, deliver and store messages. Neither the users nor their computers are required to be online simultaneously; they need connect only briefly, typically to an email server, for as long as it takes to send or receive messages.
An email message consists of three components, the message envelope, the message header, and the message body. The message header contains control information, including, minimally, an originator’s email address and one or more recipient addresses. Usually descriptive information is also added, such as a subject header field and a message submission date/time stamp.
Originally a text-only (7-bit ASCII and others) communications medium, email was extended to carry multi-media content attachments, a process standardized in RFC 2045 through 2049. Collectively, these RFCs have come to be calledMultipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME).
Electronic mail predates the inception of the Internet, and was in fact a crucial tool in creating it, but the history of modern, global Internet email services reaches back to the early ARPANET. Standards for encoding email messages were proposed as early as 1973 (RFC 561). Conversion from ARPANET to the Internet in the early 1980s produced the core of the current services. An email sent in the early 1970s looks quite similar to a basic text message sent on the Internet today.
Network-based email was initially exchanged on the ARPANET in extensions to the File Transfer Protocol (FTP), but is now carried by the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP), first published as Internet standard 10 (RFC 821) in 1982. In the process of transporting email messages between systems, SMTP communicates delivery parameters using a message envelope separate from the message (header and body) itself.
Would you be able to make it without any type of electronic messaging medium? I am pretty sure 95% of us would start struggling after a couple of days. I personally would suffer for my business it is very important to communicate fast. So I am very grateful for having the possibility to have a e-mail account actually several that I can connect with family, friends and potential clients all over the world.
Thank you so much for inventing the electronic mail service!!!
