Abstract:

The growth of personal computer availability in the Air Force has not been matched with a corresponding growth in utilization. While the office computer is widely used for word processing, its communication application has not been properly recognized by Air Force leadership. The absence of an effective Air Force policy on electronic mail has limited the acceptance and utilization of a valuable technology. A discussion of what electronic mail is and how it is utilized in the non-government sector is presented. The merits of electronic mail and applicability to the Air Force is examined.
