After recieving the above message, the GetWeb server would format the HealthNet home page as human-readable plain-text and send it to you.
You can enclose your commands in a begin/end block, or comment out lines with '#':
This preamble will not be processed by the MailBot... begin GET http://www.healthnet.org # ...neither will this comment end ...and neither will this signature.
A hotlist of URLs which we consider especially interesting is available.
Each hypertext link is represented by a number in brackets. Suppose you get a message like this from a GetWeb server:
Some important conferences carried by SatelLife include: * ProMED: Program for Monitoring Emerging Diseases * ProCAARE: Program for Collaboration Against AIDS * E-Drug: Essential Drugs ** References from this document **  http://www.healthnet.org/programs/promed.html  http://www.healthnet.org/programs/procaare.html  http://www.healthnet.org/programs/edrug.html
