AT&T EASYLINK SERVICES AND GO CORPORATION ESTABLISH WORLDWIDE NETWORK FOR PENPOINT USERS

 AT&T EASYLINK SERVICES AND GO CORPORATION ESTABLISH
 WORLDWIDE NETWORK FOR PENPOINT USERS
 PARSIPPANY, N.J., Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Laying the foundation for a new generation of communications devices, GO Corporation and AT&T EasyLink Services announced a communications link that allows PenPoint- based computer users to communicate with each other and with millions of electronic mail users through EasyLink's network.
 Using the AT&T EasyLink Services messaging network as a platform, GO will provide a software communications link that connects users of GO Mail -- the universal messaging interface that is part of the new GO Message Center -- to AT&T Mail service. Every PenPoint user in the world eventually will be tied together on this single major public messaging network, giving them access to each other, to a host of information services, and via AT&T Mail gateways to more than 20 million E-mail users in more than 160 countries. Over time, GO Mail and the AT&T Mail link will allow mobile workers to browse and retrieve information from bulletin boards and various other information sources accessed by AT&T EasyLink's worldwide electronic mail system.
 PenPoint's simple and intuitive commands, combined with EasyLink's robust messaging services, give PenPoint users an easy and simple way to manage and send information quickly through both wired and wireless connections.
 "Messaging is the great emancipator for the new era of personal communicators," said Gordon Bridge, president of AT&T EasyLink Services. "Our announcement with GO Corporation today brings together the mobile intelligence of pen-based computing and the ubiquitous reach of our messaging network to free people to do business anywhere, anytime."
 "We believe public mail networks are a vital means of linking mobile users to each other, to their companies and to a world of information services," said Bill Campbell, GO's president and chief executive officer. "AT&T offers the leading public E-mail network and is committed to the needs of mobile workers."
 GO and AT&T demonstrated GO Mail working with AT&T Mail in a wireless environment at the Electronic Messaging Association conference in San Francisco.
 The relationship between the two companies goes far beyond basic electronic mail. GO and AT&T plan to provide PenPoint users with store- and-forward fax services, bulletin boards, access to publication data bases, and even support for business transactions and electronic software distribution.
 The combination of PenPoint and EasyLink Services builds a communications infrastructure to accommodate advances in technology. PenPoint's object-oriented messaging automatically "mail-enables" all PenPoint documents, and makes it easy for third party developers to integrate messaging programmatically into their applications.
 PenPoint users will receive the AT&T Mail communications link free with PenPoint and will not have to pay a monthly access fee for using the network. Charges will apply only if they send a message or access information services.
 Believing that powerful communications links are vital to companies and mobile workers, AT&T EasyLink Services has forged arrangements with various companies in its goal to be the messaging leader in a broad spectrum of environments. Those companies include Microsoft, NCR, RAM Mobile Data, SkyTel, Sharp and Casio.
 GO Corporation, a privately held company headquartered in Foster City, Calif., develops, markets and supports a pen-based, mobile operating system and applications for mobile users worldwide.
 AT&T EasyLink Services is the global messaging unit of AT&T. It offers a broad array of messaging services, including electronic mail, electronic data interchange, network-based facsimile, information services, telex, and gateways to other public messaging systems and LAN- based E-mail systems. Based in Parsippany, N.J., it provides services to 160 countries and has sales and support offices in three dozen countries.
