Abstract
Outlines a practical programme for setting up a low-cost dogotal library server using an electronic mail interface. This approach can be used by any small library, non-profit group or corporation with a volume of information it wishes to make available to the public at minimal cost. Suggests hardware and software configurations and recommends a possible upgrade path. Discusses the reasons for preferring the Linux adaptation of UNIX for the platform for this application. Recommends a mail transport agent and outlines mail server programs available. Provides a bibliography which includes all online and printed references necessary to obtain and configure the software discussed
