Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I like communication, art, paper, painting and concepts. The ideal combination for doing Mail-Art. Worked with rubberstamps as a child and started sending out letters as soon as I could write. Discovered that it was called mail-art in 1980. Have been discovering ever since and in the last years also promoting this free cultural exchange.

    Carissimo Ruud, visto che mi è arrivata una risposta un po' secca da un membro di IUOMA, ti chiedo se mi sto muovendo in modo sbagliato, se infastidisco... ecco la risposta ricevuta"  brinkinfield left a comment for Bruno Cassaglia

    "Could you just fuck off Bruno? Your continual trawling of IUOMA members, frankly, is creepy. No one is interested in you or your blog, at least no more so than their choice of socks to wear in the morning. Accept it, give it up, do something…"  ti sarei molto grato se mi dessi un consiglio... non so più cosa fare... un fraterno abbraccio . b

    Hi Ruud.  I received a snail mail today that says. 


    End of May


    Love of my life, my wife, Nat Uhing, died suddenly in her sleep 2 months ago.  Autopsy revealed there was nothing wrong with her.  She was 45.

    I have no access to her lap top, I can´t open any of her accounts without passwords.  I keep getting piles of letters from IUOMA.

    Could you please, spread the word that Nat Quintos Uhing died so people don´t get angry when they will receive no return letters.  Thanks .

     ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Nat was not a IUOMA member.  I received a mail art from Nat last March and sent back another one.  That has been all my contact with her.  The sender address is Nat´s.  I have no idea what to do at this time.  Do you?

  • Mel Anie

    Hi Ruud, Most of the images on this ning won't display for me on either Safari or Chrome. I can't send messages either and I can't sign out. I don't know what the problem is. Thanks, Mel Anie.
  • Mel Anie

    Hi Ruud, I tried to use other devices. Same problem on phone but on another laptop it can't connect to the site. Says IUOMA ning is taking too long to respond. All other websites are working fine so I don't think it's my internet either.
  • Mail Art Martha

    Hi Ruud, sorry to come again with my problems to you but I worry that you may be paying for a certificate that does not work anymore.
    Since last week nearly all the illustrations are gone again and I tried to open IUOMA in my phone it told me the site was 'unsecure'
    In My Photos Album 'Heeeeelp!are the screens I got on the phone.
    This is the only way I managed to contact you. The symbol to attach graphics to messages has gone too so I could not attach the photos here. It worked two days ago even if the photos did not.Is it only for me?

  • Bruno Cassaglia - poetArtist

    Hi Ruud, a friend of mine Maristella De Giuseppe, tries to register, but she can't, can you help her? thank you! a fraternal embrace; b

  • Valentine Mark Herman

    Hello Ruud,

    I hope you are well and have survived all the Covid waves.

    I have been sent information about the 'Mail Art Wave 2022', and am unsure what to do about it, and so would like to hear your views on it.

    It seems to be some sort of rival network to IUOMA -- to which my first loyalty lies.

    I could join in the 'wave', but not if it is jeapordises the position of IUOMA in the Mail Art world.

    With that, I wave, and say, goodbye;

    Regards, Val
