Ask Anything

There are a lot of basic questions on Mail Art that are often asked and answered. This group might be the first place to look for answers. I will do my best to answer, but hope that other members can help out as well.

I Googled a while back and tried to find out postage rates from country to country within Europe, but couldn't find the cross-national matrix that I was looking for. It might not exist, and if that is the case then it will be necessary to assemble this info on a country-by-country basis -- which shouldn't be too difficult as most countries are covered by IUOMA.
From France, there are 3 postal rates:i) internal @ €0.58, ii) to Europe, @ € 0.75, iii) to the rest of the world, @ € 0.87.
These rates are for standard size envelopes and postcards. For anything bigger, well then you have to go to La Poste where they weigh/measure whatever it you've got to send.
Regrads, Val

I think it DOES have a function. There are a set of initial questions that pople new to IUOMA (like me) have. They are very basic -- like what is Mail Art? What is an ATC? Newcomers will always have those sorts of questions, while 'Oldies' and 'Veterans' wont. But above all it is very reassuring to know that Ruud is the, well sort of IUOMA Wikipeadia -- ask him a question and you will get an answerbased on his considerable and unique experience, come what may. Keep up the good work, Ruud! Regards, Val

Seems there aren't much questions for the time being. We will see if this group has a function.

Yes? or No?
This is going to be a great group, thanks, Ruud.

We will see how this group functions. In the Discussion Forums hopefully some nice lines about the several aspects of mail-art will become available for all to discover.

Bon! Good going! What a good group, thanks Ruud.

I hope that a lot of basis questions on Mail-Art will come up in this group and that the ones who know the answers will share their knowledge here. This group will then become the resource for any newcomer to Mail Art and or IUOMA.
