      How to Visit Web Sites by Email

      Web-to-Email servers allow you to retrieve information from any
      public Web site, anywhere in the world.

      How does it work?

      Web-to-Email servers are computers which fetch documents from
      the Web, and send them to the user as email messages, either in
      plain text or html. To use the system, simply send an email
      message addressed to one of the Web-to-Email servers listed [on
      the page]. Leave the subject line blank. In the body of the email
      message, type the URL (a Web address beginning with http://) of
      the Web page you want to read.

      Have you ever wished you could get web pages by e-mail? Now
      you can! Using the Kabissa www4mail server, you can have web
      pages delivered to your e-mail mailbox for you to browse offline at
      your leisure. All you need to be able to do is to send a message to
      www4mail@... containing the Internet URL (meaning the
      website address, e.g. http:// www.kabissa.org) of the website you
      wish to get.

      WHAT IS KABISSA?

      Kabissa is a non-profit capacity-building organisation that seeks to
      further democratic change and social justice in Africa by providing a
      space on the Internet for the African non-profit sector. Eligible non-
      profits get free membership accounts, including standard e-mail
      mailboxes, FTP accounts, web space, mailing lists, and more.
      Kabissa members are promoted through the Kabissa Member
      Directory, and they engage in internet advocacy and information
      exchange through a popular weekly eNewsletter that we put out in
      collaboration with fahamu and SANGONeT.

      WHY DID KABISSA SET UP WWW4MAIL@... ?
      As you might imagine, a great number of organisations in Africa
      work under conditions where access to the Internet is difficult. They
      are generally able to pick up e-mail, however, so we set up the
      www4mail@... server to enable them to access web pages
      and other internet resources by e-mail. The www4mail@...
      server provides an excellent complement to the eNewsletter and
      website. Taken together, these three services provide access to an
      almost unlimited power over the information and resources of the
      Internet. The eNewsletter provides the links to current relevant
      information, www4mail@... provides the access, and the
      website provides the means for making information available that
      isn't already available elsewhere.
