There is plethora of materials available on the Internet including software which can be used in the teaching of mathematics. The Mathematics Archives has provided many of these materials for those who access to the Internet via anonymous ftp, gopher or World-Wide-Web. Recently, a mail server has been set up on the Mathematics Archives so that those who only have access to the Internet through an e-mail account can now retrieve these materials. This will be a discussion on how the mail server can be utilized to obtain these materials and the types of materials available. Tools to utilize this system from MSDOS computers will be made available to those who bring along a 3 1/2'' floppy.
