To issue these commands to the server, place a command at the beginning of a
line in the body of an email message to email@example.com .
For file accesses, the server will mail a confirmation note detailing what to
expect. If the file is reasonably short, it will simply send the file in a
mail message. If the file is long, it will "uuencode" it and send it in
mail-sized chunks (the explanatory note will tell how many to expect). Once
you receive the file, you must concatenate the pieces and uudecode it; ask for
the file "uuencode.help" for details on this process.
As an example, to receive the uuencode.help file using the GET command, send
the following line in the body of an email message to the grassp-request
address given above:
