Here is a flyer put out by ACT (Association of Concerned Theosophists).
Theosophy Resources on the Internet
Presented as a service to theosophists by the Association of Concerned
Theosophists (ACT). The Internet has opened up immense opportunities to
access and exchange information on Theosophy. Two key functions of the
Internet are the Word Wide Web (WWW) and the e-mail based Maillists.
World Wide Web (WWW): At various locations on the Internet, a lot of
retrievable information such as theosophical classics like The Secret
Doctrine and The Key to Theosophy are available for free. To access them
one needs an Internet Connection and a program such as Netscape Navigator
or Internet Explorer. Some of the WWW addresses are listed below. The list
is not exhaustive. More sites can be found by using search engines.
Theosophical Society in America (Adyar) http://www.theosophical.org
Theosophical Society (Pasadena) http://www.theosociety.org/pasadena

Maillists: Maillists based on electronic mail (e-mail) cater to specific
interests. Maillists distribute e-mail messages to everyone in the list.
One has to sign up for a maillist to be included in it, to receive the
e-mail messages and to participate in it. Unlike WWW, an Internet
Connection is not essential. From most major cities around the country, one
can use free e-mail from JUNO Company. All that is needed is a Personal
Computer with Windows. For information on how to get a free JUNO
connection, please contact John Mead whose telephone number is listed
below. Almost all maillists are free and anyone can join them. To join, one
has to send a e-mail message to the specific address with an online
"subscribe" message as indicated, replacing xxxxxxx with your real name.
THEOS-L , ACT-L and THEOS-TALK are very active lists. Some of the maillist
