What is email?

Stumbled across this funny ad from 1977. It is a visual illustration of email.

“Ah the good ol’ days…… When you could smoke at your desk (notice the ashtray) and receive “Electronic Mail” without a computer at your desk…”

The text says,

Electronic Mail is a term that’s been bandied about data processing circles for years.
Simply out, it means high-speed information transportation. One of the most advanced methods is terminals talking to one another.
Your mailbox is the terminal on your desk. Punch a key and today’s correspondence and messages are displayed instantly.
Need to notify people immediately of a fast-breaking development? Have your messages delivered to their terminal mailboxes electronically, across the hall or around the world.
Electronic Mail is document distribution that’s more timely, accurate and flexible than traditional methods.
There’s no mountain of paperwork.
Administrative personnel are more effective.
Managers have access to more up-to-date information. Decision-making is easier.
Tomorrow’s automated office will clearly include Electronic Mail. But like the rest of the Office of the Future, it’s available at Honeywell today.
For more information, call Laurie Reeves at (800)225-3222/3 (within the 617 area, call 552-2048). Or write him at Honeywell Office Automation Systems, Three Newton Executive Park Drive, Newton Lower falls, Massachusetts 02162.
