This article was written by Ian Lance Taylor `<ian@airs.com>' and I may
even update it periodically.  Please send me mail about suggestions or
inaccuracies.

This article describes how the various UUCP protocols work, and
discusses some other internal UUCP issues.  It does not describe how to
configure UUCP, nor how to solve UUCP connection problems, nor how to
deal with UUCP mail.  I do not know of any FAQ postings on these topics.
There are some documents on the net describing UUCP configuration, but I
can not keep an up to date list here; try using archie.

If you haven't read the `news.announce.newusers' articles, read them.

This article is in digest format.  Some newsreaders will be able to
break it apart into separate articles.  Please don't ask me how to do
this, though.

This article covers the following topics.  If questions about one of
these topics is posted to `comp.mail.uucp', please send mail to the
poster referring her or him to this FAQ.  There is no reason to post a
followup, as most of us know the answer already.
