Video Transcript

等她回過神來,一切都太遲了
潘美的腦筋打轉
首先想到的就是電子郵件
那些通訊非常重要
她隔天去找IT人員求助
談到電子郵件時,她放心不少
她的電子郵件都保住了
但她不懂為什麼
IT專家用快速簡介向她解釋
他說每次她用電腦登入網頁
或在線上做任何事
都會連接到稱為伺服器的電腦
那些伺服器把她接到
所需的服務,包括電子郵件
每一個有電子郵址的人
都在伺服器上有個郵箱
您發送電子郵件時,伺服器
會確保送到正確的郵址
不過事實沒這麼簡單
電子郵件不是全部都一樣
例如,潘美的郵件以前
都留在伺服器直到她查看為止
郵件會挪到她的電腦
並且從伺服器刪除
她的電腦保管所有郵件
也就是說一旦電腦出事
一切都會沒了
潘美瞭解那種感覺
現在,情況不同了
她的郵件都同時
留在伺服器和她的電腦上
兩者協同合作
每次她刪除或整理
在她電腦或器材上的郵件
伺服器也做同樣改變
那就是說她可以一口氣
管理在多個器材上的郵件
這就是關鍵
因為伺服器
會安全整齊地保管郵件
她的自由度更大了
不僅如此,她還可以
透過一個網頁來打開郵件
這叫做webmail
這讓她可以用任何電腦或器材
通過連上網路來登入她的郵箱
對潘美來說這是真正的自由
她可以利用在家或在辦公室
的電腦,或在路上用任何器材
甚至用公用電腦來查看郵件
伺服器一直都妥善保存一切
即使打翻了咖啡也不怕

What it teaches

Email has evolved over the years. It used to live on our computers, but it
now lives on servers and this evolution has changed how we think about
email. This video highlights what these changes mean for the average
email user. It teaches:

    •    Basic email infrastructure: servers and email boxes
    •    Why email is often safe, even when a computer is ruined
    •    Web-based email
    •    Why email is now more accessible than ever
