Chapter 14. E-mail

Every successful computer system and technology has a certain capability that makes it popular. Such capabilities are called killer applications, or more commonly, killer apps. For the Macintosh itself, the original killer app was desktop publishing—until the Macintosh, no personal computer system came with things such as a high-resolution display that enables you to do true WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) document creation and previewing, and a mouse to give you the fine-grained control needed to manipulate high-quality, high-resolution images.

While the Internet is fun and surfing the Web is a great way to do research, the true killer application is electronic mail, usually abbreviated to e-mail. Everyone uses e-mail to correspond and communicate, and many businesses simply wouldn’t run without it. In most offices, e-mail messages have replaced interoffice memos, and the only time you get a piece of paper is when regulations require it.
