Since the early 1990's e-mail has become as ubiquitous as the computers needed to transmit and
receive it. Many businesses are dependent on it, and a good percentage of all private individuals
in the developed world are equally dependent on it as a means -- often a primary means -- of
communication with others. Nor is this trend limited to the so-called ""developed"" countries.
Anyplace you can find an electrical outlet and a phone outlet, you are likely to find computers
