Some of the mainframe computers of this era might have had up to one hundred users what are called "dumb terminals" to access the mainframe from their work desks. Before internetworking began, email could only be used to send messages to various users of the same computer. Once computers began to talk to each other over networks, however, the problem became a little more complex - We needed to be able to put a message in an envelope and address it. To do this, we needed a means to indicate to whom letters should go that the electronic posties understood - just like the postal system, we needed a way to indicate an address.
This is why Ray Tomlinson is credited with inventing email in 1972. Like many of the Internet inventors, Tomlinson worked for Bolt Beranek and Newman as an ARPANET contractor. He picked the @ symbol from the computer keyboard to denote sending messages from one computer to another. So then, for anyone using Internet standards, it was simply a matter of nominating [email protected]
Despite what the world wide web offers, email remains the most important application of the Internet and the most widely used facility it has. Now more than 600 million people internationally use email.

When you check your mail, your email program connects to your email provider's email server over the Internet, often with the POP3 protocol, and downloads incoming mail and stores it in your email application's Inbox.

Forwarding is typically used to send an email to someone who wasn't on the original addressee list.

Your email program should automatically save all outgoing email in your Out mailbox.
