Electronic mail (or e-mail) was the first Internet application and is still the most popular one. E-mail is a way of sending messages between people or computers through networks of computer connections. E-mail is not limited to the Internet; e-mail messages can be moved through local or organizational networks, or through gateways to other networks and systems, such as CompuServe or America Online (AOL). Many organizations, including hospitals, already have an internal e-mail system allowing rapid and open communications within the organization and, via outside connections, communications to organizations and individuals anywhere computer networks reach.
