A development that theoretically makes electronic mail systems a whole lot more useful by enabling messages to be directed to facsimile machines has been announced in the US by DA Systems Inc of Campbell, California, and electronic mail services operator GeoNet Mailbox Systems Inc of Alexandria, Virginia. Microbytes Daily reports that the system enables subscribers to DA’s DASnet service to send text messages to anyone who has a facsimile machine whether dedicated or one that is an addon to a personal computer. Initially the service supports only ASCII text and only oneway mailtofax transmission. DASnet and GeoMail interconnect various public electronic mail systems so that by subscribing to one of the two services, users can send and receive messages between two unlinked services.
