Compuserve has an Internet connection and their host name is simply
compuserve.com. Users have a particular user number as an address,
e.g, 12345.678, so their complete address would be
12345.678 at compuserve.com. I am not sure whether or not MCI mail and
others have Internet access. My understanding is that users are
charged for sending mail out but I am not sure that this is the case
for incoming mail. I am also aware of length limitations in some
cases which may lead to truncation of longer messages sent to
compuserve addresses. I have not personally used any of these
services, but have communicated with users on Compuserve.
