Global Internet Mail Goes Commercial April 1

Global Internet Mail Goes Commercial April 1

Scott Air Force Base, Ill. (AFPN) 31 March 2000 -- People using Air Mobility Command's Global Internet Mail, better known as GI Mail, may find they don't have access to their old account, but can still open a new one.

That's because the system is being upgraded April 1, and will be accessible through commercial Internet service providers. Previously, GI Mail was restricted to service members with accounts through ".mil" domains for security and performance issues. Now, users can take advantage of this new GI Mail improvement by accessing and establishing a new account on the GI Mail "2000" server.

"We strongly encourage you to do this right away as the 'old GI Mail' will disappear in another 60 days!" said Capt. Everett Shaver, AMC Network Operations and Security Center. A link and instructions on the "old GI Mail" home page will help users establish a new commercially accessible account.

Beginning May 1, users will be able access their new "GI Mail 2000" accounts through ".com" domains at the site's home page. Also, users will be able to access their old e-mail via a link from GI Mail 2000 (and can forward their old e-mail to their new commercially accessible accounts). Then, beginning June 1, the old system will be taken offline and any e-mail left on the old system will be deleted.

GI Mail provides morale e-mail service for families to communicate with deployed service members. Deployed AMC aircrews and personnel can also use this e-mail service for official, but unclassified e-mail traffic.

Unlike other commercial e-mail services, GI Mail is an Internet-based e-mail system owned and operated by AMC. It offers the same services and functionality as most commercially provided e-mail services, but with three advantages:

  • GI Mail services are protected by being placed inside the government network behind the firewall here;
  • GI Mail allows people to forward correspondence from their home base to their GI Mail account when they are on the road; and
  • GI Mail improves e-mail communications by using available bandwidth and eliminating the commercial ads found in most e-mail service providers. (Courtesy of AMC News Service)
