from my archives-about kmahmood@canada.com and kmahmood@ottawa.com ******* email aliases setup around mid 1996 in Ottawa Ontario Canada.

TO WHOM IT MAY INTEREST:

From my archives my canada.com email alias . This domain was discontinued around 2011 or so. I started using this domain for email around mid 1996 when we lived in Ottawa, no one believed at that time that this was an actual working email address.

Same with ottawa.com – I used kmahmood@ottawa.com email alias during the period 1996 -1998.

People around me at that time (for example people in the mosque and people I met through some contacts used to question about it and considered these email aliases as supspicious), had a difficulty understanding how this worked it was very new and not so well known technology at that time.

both domains were discontinued for some unknown reason.

This screenshot below is of an email I sent to myself for record keeping in 2006. Still available in my inbox.

This domain (canada.com) was available on internet up untill 2006 or so.


First time ever I had access to email was on a VMS/MS-Windows Work Station at my desk with my own email address was in 1995 at Bechtel Inc. in San Francisco. Prior to that I had no access to email in Toronto or anywhere else in my previous work settings. CM Inc. my first employers in Canada in 1994 did not use emails for communication. For projects work Bulletin board email was used to transfer computer programs , one person used to send a email to an email address another person at a job site used to login to the same bulletin board email address and download (file transfer without FTP, cool idea at that time, dial in internet was expensive and slow, file size limitations etc.). Even During a refresher program at York University email was not used.
