E-mail predates the inception of the Internet, and was in fact a crucial tool in creating the Internet. MIT first demonstrated the Compatible Time-Sharing System (CTSS) in 1961. It allowed multiple users to log into the IBM 7094 from remote dial-up terminals, and to store files online on disk. This new ability encouraged users to share information in new ways. E-mail started in 1965 as a way for multiple users of a time-sharing mainframe computer to communicate. Although the exact history is murky, among the first systems to have such a facility were SDC's Q32 and MIT's CTSS.

hurry up and answer it!! i need it by FridayRay Tomlinson is credited with developing the first viable e-mail program in 1971 for use on the ARPANET. Although text messages we…re occassionally sent over the network, Tomlinson created the first program. He also initiated the "@" addressing convention used today to denote the user and host (firstname.lastname@example.org). The first e-mail message sent by Tomlinson was to all users on ARPANET and described how to send e-mail messages.
1971! The first email was sent by a very bright chap named Ray Tomlinson who, way back in 1971, developed the software that allowed messages to be sent between comp…uters. He was then working at an American firm that was helping develop the forerunner of the Internet. Unfortunately, Tomlinson can't remember what he wrote in the very first test email - although he has suggested it might simply have been the word "testing". Tomlinson also randomly decided to use "@" to designate email addresses - an off-the-cuff decision that probably saved the once obscure symbol from extinction.
something like 'qwertyuiop' (the top letters of the keyboard)

The real question is : would do like to go further with him ? If you would, answer him.
Ray Tomlinson sent the first email in 1971. The message was sent from one Digital Equipment Corporation DEC-10 computer to another Digital Equipment Corporation DEC-10 compute…r.
Ray Tomlinson invented the first internet based email. The first email program was invented in late 1971 for the ARPANET while Tomlinson worked for BBN.
It was at MIT in the early 1970's.
Dear Sir, please arrange the cake & bouquet 5th floor breakout-aria.
Well you could make a hotmail account or gmail, or another one. Alternatively you could use the email services provided by your ISP, but this may require some setting up etc..…
You mean: "When was the first email sent?" Much like the first telegraph or phone call, the first email marked an historic moment in the evolution of communication. Unfortuna…tely, the message itself was less than earth shattering. The text of that first electronic missive consisted of "something like QWERTYUIOP." Sent by computer engineer Ray Tomlinson in 1971, the email was simply a test message to himself. The email was sent from one computer to another computer sitting right beside it in Cambridge, Massachusetts, but it traveled via ARPANET, a network of computers that was the precursor to the Internet. Working for Bolt Beranek and Newman (the company picked by the U.S. Defense Department to build ARPANET), Tomlinson had been fooling around with two programs called SNDMSG and READMAIL, which allowed users to leave messages for one another on the same machine. He applied the idea behind these programs to a third program called CYPNET, which allowed users to send and receive files between computers. The combined technology allowed people to send and receive files that could be appended between different machines. Despite his groundbreaking success with email, Tomlinson is better known for introducing the "@" sign as the locator in email addresses.
