The Eden Project conducts research in the design and implementation of a distributed computing environment for a local area network. A specific goal in designing Eden was to provide users the advantages of both physical distribution and logical integration. Edmas, the Eden mail system, provided an early test of Eden as a base for building distributed applications. This paper discusses Edmas, and shows how Eden's advanced functionality aided us in structuring a distributed mail system, particularly in the areas of replying and distribution lists.
