Re: Back in the day

I'm pretty common and I had email (300 baud or 1200/75 depending on if Prestel, BBS or X25 PAD) from 1981

And I'm pretty sure that I had something that looked a lot like email on the various BBS's that I inhabited in the early '80s.

It didn't use the @ character and a message might take a week to get to the recipient (depending on the frequency of the BBS dialling the interchange points) but it mostly worked..
