Started in 1984, FidoNet is a system for exchanging e-mail and discussion group and other files
among users of over 30,000 bulletin board services. FidoNet messages are sent using the
UNIX-to-UNIX Copy Protocol (UUCP).
Messages can travel over the Internet after being converted to TCP/IP
format by computer servers that act as Internet gateway.
