  3. 3. The Evolution of Internet Based Communication <ul><li>Evolution of eMail </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Host-based mail systems: The original email systems allowed communication only between users who logged into the same host or &quot;mainframe&quot;. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Homogeneous email networks: Many early peer-to-peer email networking only worked among computers running the same OS or program. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Attempts at interoperability: ARPANET, the forerunner of today's Internet, defined the first protocols for dissimilar computers to exchange email </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Evolution of Instant Messaging </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Instant messaging  predates the Internet, first appearing on multi-user operating systems like CTSS and Multics in the 1960’s </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>As networks developed, the protocols spread with the networks. Some of these used a peer-to-peer protocol (e.g. talk, ntalk and ytalk), while others required peers to connect to a server (see talker and IRC). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Common Protocall : Microsoft and Yahoo! , by the 3rd quarter of 2006 incorporated SIP/SIMPLE  followed, in December 2005, by the AOL and Google strategic partnership deal after which Google Talk users were able to communicate with AIM and ICQ users provided they had an AIM account </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>IM From a Webpage : Gmail has instant messaging capacity in webpage itself, which can be used in a web browser without the need to download and install the IM client. Later Yahoo and Hotmail also implemented it. </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Some Fun Facts about eMail <ul><li>If email was a country , its 1.8 billion users would make it the largest in the world.
