[ih] question re. early adoption of email

>>> I have been led to believe that (one of) the earliest forms of "email"
>>> consisted of UUCPing (or later, ftping) document files around.

We should also remember fidonet, which in its day was probably bigger
than usenet, and likely carried more mail, too.  Same idea, hop by hop
dialup, although fido tried a lot harder to organize the toplogy to take
advantage of local calling areas.
