The following regarding MCI mail was plucked/edited from a local bboard.
I've had no occasion to try it. I have communicated with the 'Portal'
system from as:
username at cup.portal.com
-------- from bboard:
From: "David K. Ely" <dely at NRI.Reston.VA.US>
Currently, there is no charge for sending mail from the Internet to MCI Mail.
In order to send mail to users on MCI Mail, use one of the following addresses
:accountname at mcimail.com
mci_id at mcimail.com
full_user_name at mcimail.com
For instance, I have a mailbox on MCI Mail. You could send mail to me
via either dely at mcimail.com or 379-3286 at mcimail.com or David_Ely at mcimail.com.
Users on MCI Mail can also send messages to the Internet. At the "Command:"
prompt, type "create <carriage return>. Then the user performs the following:
(NOTE the "TO:", "EMS:" and "MBX:" strings are prompts provided by MCI Mail.
Command: create <return>
TO: David K. Ely (EMS)
MBX: dely at NRI.Reston.VA.US
This address is translated to:
"David K. Ely" <dely at NRI.Reston.VA.US> by the Gateway.
Mail sent from MCI Mail to the Internet is charged by MCI Mail.
