A new electronic mail link developed

Library Systems Newsletter [July 1986]

MCI Communications Corp. and CompuServe, Inc. have signed an agreement to connect their formerly incompatible electronic mail services under which a half million subscribers will have access to both MCI Mail and CompuServe's Info-Plex and EasyPlex facilities. MCI Mail's LINK protocol lets subscribers to either service create and send messages without having to learn new access methods or commands. This agreement is the first domestic link between competing electronic mail services. It is hoped that more such links will follow.
