Abstract:

Electronic mail systems EMS are used by many different organizations, including the U.S. Army. An EMS has many advantages. It allows the action officer or the manager to be more productive because the action officer no longer has to play telephone tag in order to communicate with another individual. The mail is sent electronically, and the other individual replies hopefully whenever they receive the communication. An EMS also enhances productivity because the action officer is not required to make introductory and closing small talk. The electronic mail can be concise and to the point. Additionally, the action officer does not have to put the electronic mail into a special format, as is often required by other communications means, such as the standard Army letter or the standard Army message format. Keywords Theses Electronic mail Computer systems Army personnel Data bases Message processing.
