34 Internet/BITNET/UUCP networks and sites in Greece


General Notes (Mail gateways):
------------------------------

If you don't know how to access eg. a machine in BITNET while
you're on the Internet, call your sysadmins for help.
I summarize here the most often asked question:

Q: I want to contact a person in , eg. GRPATVX1 in BITNET. How do I send
mail to user@GRPATVX1 ?

A1: If your site has a smart configuration, it's enough to add the .BITNET
domain name in the receiver's addres, ie. user@GRPATVX1.BITNET

(failing that:)
A2: Send the mail via a BITNET-Internet gateway site, eg. via rice.edu as:
user%GRPATVX1.BITNET@rice.edu
Another good guess is a BITNET site close to the national BITNET gateway, eg.
user%GRPATVX1.BITNET@pythia.csi.forth.gr (via the Greek Inet gateway)

Similarly for registered Greek UUCP sites, use:

user%site.uucp@pythia.csi.forth.gr

I want to stress that this is a usual *kludge* (ie. de facto usage). Don't
expect a BITNET site to use exactly these conventions. Use FAX/Phone to make an
initial contact with the sysadmins or the person you want to contact.
