Email Service at ACOR
|E-mail services in the hostel are of several types. None
are guaranteed. ACOR has purchased services for several categories of E-mailing, depending
upon the user. Services available apply only to residents of ACOR, fellows and affiliated
fellows, or the business office. No services are provided for visitors to the center.
E-mail equipment is mostly outdated donated computers which are slow and sometimes
unreliable. A computer for Fellows use in E-mail and www sourcing is a new Pentium
It is suggested however that all residents
and fellows obtain their own internet accounts. It is also strongly suggested that all
fellows and researchers bring their own notebook computers and essential software. No
programs or computer access are guaranteed while at ACOR. The common use of the ACOR
computers makes them susceptible to down time and inopportune use by others who do not
recognize your deadlines.
BRING YOUR OWN COMPUTER AND SOFTWARE
FOR YOUR RESEARCH NEEDS. THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR YOUR OWN COMPUTER!!!
|Users are requested to not tamper, tailor, modify the
equipment, cabling or software. Problems occur as numerous people all want the computers
to work like their machines do at home and reconfigure them in some way, leaving a mess
afterwards. These machines are meant to support minimal needs, but for all users.
See below the Internet options available!
ACOR EMAIL ACCOUNTS
The ACOR Business Office E-mail is
<acor at go dot com dot jo>. This Email address is specifically for ACOR business
related communications and emergency communications to residents and fellows.
Non-emergency communications to Fellows and Residents are billed at $1 per printed page.
The ACOR Fellow Email Account is
<email@example.com>. This address is for all fellows to use while at ACOR,
for incoming and outgoing messages. The mail is not checked, except by resident fellows at
ACOR. Mail is deleted weekly. Do not have mail sent to this address unless you are a
resident fellow at ACOR.
There is a dedicated computer, supporting the fellows with 24 hour access to the internet
and the Email. As this is a common use computer for the Fellows, it must be scheduled
among the fellows and the time allocated graciously. Messages to a fellow must have the
fellow's name in the subject line of the message.
There are no other programs on the fellow computer supporting word processing or other
functions, as the intent of the computer is to provide access to the www and support the
E-mail/Internet needs of the fellows.
The ACOR Resident Account is
<firstname.lastname@example.org>. This account is for residents of ACOR to use. It is not
checked, except by residents of ACOR. Mail is deleted weekly. Do not have mail sent to
this address unless you are a resident of the ACOR facility.
There is a dedicated IBM 386 machine supporting E-mail service. No other programs are on
the computer to ensure that it is dedicated to Residents' E-mail needs. Internet access is
not possible with this account. This account is limited to 3.1 hours daily and cuts off
all access at the completion of that time. The clock is reset at 0001 each night.
This account does not allow composing text off line except with cutting and pasting of the
text. On net time is very limited and composing messages on line wastes the access time.
Residents must cooperate to maximize the availablity of the computer to all.

are listed below. The sales offices of each company are provided. As all the Internet
providers have access packages that are changing, as well as service rates that vary, the
Internet addresses are provided so you can contact them directly for the latest in
