All questions E.mail- Russ at Sonoma MedLink

One of the guiding principles in Sonoma MedLink is that we are here to make the Internet easy to use. We are aware that medical professionals are busy people and time is a precious commodity. We want you to be able to connect and do what you need to do in a timely manner. When we were planning the types of packages to install on each subscribers system, we used several criteria: The package should be Bi-Platform (i.e. Both Mac & PC.) It should be easy to perform the basic needs of that function (in this case E.Mail.) And finally it should be easy to explain it's operation. We choose an E.mail Package called Eudora. There are many other packages available but it is our opinion that this one performs the basics better than the others.

I urge you to send your questions in written form to me using the link at the top of this page. The more types of questions I get, the better job I can do of helping you and those that follow get connected and use your time wisely.
