20 years Email in Germany

20 years ago, Germany got connected to the CSNet. This article shows the first email that reached Germany.
Why do I write this? Because the CS Department of U Karlsruhe later 'outsourced' this part into one of the first German Internet providers 'Xlink' that later became of the now bancrupt KPNQwest. I had the pleasure to follow parts of this live from '93 on @Xlink.
