Users on BITNET and EARN should send the same message to:

Subject: Technical Question
Could anyone explain to me how I can write (via e-mail) to persons whose
names and nodes exceed the eight characters allowed by my university
computer? What do I do to send a note to someone with an address like
terminator@shellac.ac.uk.blutwurst.plato? Thank you for your help.
