Mutt on Windows
“Mutt is a Mail User Agent (MUA) for Unix operating systems. It is used to read mails. Not to send, fetch, or filter mails, nor to write mails. To complete your mail system you might want to use: sendmail to send and receive mails; fetchmail to fetch mails from external POP or IMAP accounts; procmail to process and filter incomming mails; abook to store, edit, and search your address book; and, of course, your favourite editor to write the mails.
Mutt was originally written by Michael Elkins, but is now developed and maintained by a group of volunteers gathered around the Mutt-Developers’ mailing list, firstname.lastname@example.org. The official homepage is located at http://www.mutt.org.
A very good description of what Mutt is and isn’t, what Mutt can and can’t, and what utilities can be used together with Mutt is the text “My first Mutt”, by Bruno Postle.
These pages are intended to be an aid in letting you install and run Mutt as a native MS-Windows (32 bit) application. Pointers to replacements for the applications that usually run in cooperation with Mutt to form a full mail system will also be given, together with brief instructions on how to set them up.”

Insegnare Apprendere Mutare / Corso di informatica – Internet – Indirizzi Internet
“Corso di informatica – Internet – Indirizzi Internet
E’ evidente che la possibilità di raggiungere in pochissimo tempo un computer qualsiasi fra decine di milioni deve avere un ottimo sistema di indirizzamento. In Internet si hanno due tipi di indirizzi:
gli indirizzi IP
gli indirizzi simbolici.
Dei due tipi di indirizzi gli indirizzi IP sono i piu’ importanti. Infatti le comunicazioni tra computer basate sul protocollo TCP/IP avvengono grazie al fatto che ogni computer connesso alla rete Internet viene identificato in modo univoco da un indirizzo, detto appunto indirizzo IP.
Il termine “indirizzo IP” dipende dal fatto che la loro struttura dipende dal sistema IP (livello di rete dell’architettura ISO/OSI) di gestione degli indirizzi.”
