|distributed.net Faq-O-Matic : the Client software : Can I get and send work units through email?|
Yes you can! If you are having problems with getting dnetc to connect through a firewall, you should speak to your local sysadmin/computer expert in the first instance.
If you wish to download 123 packets of work for the OGR-28 project, you should enter "numblocks=123" and "contest=OGR" on separate lines in the body of an email to email@example.com. If you don't enter the "contest=OGR" line, it will download packets of work for the RC5-72 project instead.
To send us completed work, attach your buff-out.r72/buff-out.og2 file to an email and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that the email@example.com service can only handle messages encoded in uuencode or base64.
