UUCP Copy Protocol
The UUCP (Unix-to-Unix CoPy) program was developed at AT&T Bell Labs.
UUCP is a collection of computer programs and protocols allowing remote
execution of commands and transfer of files, email and netnews between
computers. AT&T Bell Labs distributed UUCP with the UNIX operating
system one year later.
Elizabeth II, Queen of the United Kingdom, sent out the first royal email.
