E-mail Service Notices




The Santa Clara County ARES/RACES network provides a standard Internet-style e-mail service. The service provides e-mail functionality throughout Santa Clara County even if the entire Internet is completely down. The service can also send and receive e-mail to/from Internet e-mail addresses. But the service is not in any way dependent on the Internet.
