If you have an official AU email account and do not wish to use it as your primary
e-mail account, you can easily forward all of the mail that is sent to the AU account to
the email account of your choice. To do this, log in to the DUC Sun Network and at the
prompt type pico .forward; (do not forget the period before forward -
include a space between "pico" and "."; no space
between the period and the word forward) a new screen will appear where you will type the
e-mail address that you wish the mail to be forwarded to; then use CTRL X to cancel, and
hit the return key until you return to the system prompt. Your mail will now be forwarded
to the e-mail address of your choice.
An on-line solution manual is available; the username and password will be
given in class.
