every starport has a " post restante " for travellers for physical mail , this must be sent to that specific starport , and an alert sent around by e-mail to tell the recipient to collect . the poster pays for a certain period of storage .
e-mail comes in by x-boat and is distributed on local networks . small e-mail messages can be spread over a large area quite quickly by copying onto all x-boat routes . these are bought in " generations " i.e. the number of times the message will be copied on all routes at a junction . a message can be sent to a specific junction before copying commences .
in a few months , at an alarming cost in credits , you could theoretically have an e-mail at every major starport in the imperium .
