To Colin & List, My apols, an e-mail article, I just forwarded to the list was pre-war. However, it may still answer some questions, so please don't delete it without first reading it. As I haven't, personally, recently been trying to communicate with Iraq, I cannot be helpful in answering the question of e-mailing with Iraq. However, I do have an Iraqi friend, in B'ham, who hadn't had e-mail contact with Baghdad, for some months. With help of the International Red Cross, he did manage to get some brief communications, fairly recently - I think via telephone. He was unhappy that it just was a few words, he thought because of massive queueing for telephones, but at least he would have had confirmed that his family were still alive & (?)well. Uruklink may well be controlled by the occupying forces, if at all functioning. Electricity, as we know, is a scarce commodity in Iraq. Then there is the problem of breakdown in law & order. I think all of us must have seen looters running off with computers - some would have been vandalised. - That's all I can think of to say, for now.
