[ih] The Atlantic on Email

For all it is worth I got a few emails for .NZ in the beginning and
as I had a German keyboard (Z and Y swapped) I it took quite some
time to figure that out.

Then I got some stuff for the Radio Amateurs' packet radio North
America routing.

The one I liked the most was stuff for some Naval station at Great
Lakes, somehow VY.MIL got cut off.  I eventually got hold of the
Admiral concerned and it took one single email from him to have it
fixed :-)-O
