Hi, Bee:

It is very nice to hear that NZ TS is leading the way to the rest of the
world in the use of Internet/e-mail. I am sure that every section in the
world can benefit from your experience and your implementation may become a
model for others to follow. Please keep all of us informed of your progress.

With regards,       ...............doss
