I have always regretted the fact that Erik D. Schmid's website got hacked before I developed an interest in mail. I can only imagine what kind of resources were available. What was the website like? Was it basically a collection of articles about mail, or did Schmid offer step by step instructions?

Does anyone know if Erik is working on putting the website back up? Or is there perhaps some other place that the information is stored? I actually found a book called "The Journal of the Mail Research Society" on Amazon by Schmid but no copies seem to be available.

Could someone kindly suggest some reading material or websites that contain scholarly work on mail?

Erik's site had a forum section and a downloads section, which contained pdfs of published papers. IIRC there was nothing about making mail apart from what was in those papers.

Shame. I'd have liked to have read them all. I don't suppose they're available somewhere else?

Yes, a number of those articles are available online, but not in a centralized location. You'll have to do a search for them. Using the Wayback machine, you can see the list of pdf files on Erik's site, although they won't open. However, you can search by the author and article title to find it online in many cases.

This facebook page from a member of the NVG does a fair job of collecting data, though (obviously) links to Erik's site are broken.

I just updated the page and added thirty files for everyone to download. I will have information on the journal hopefully by tomorrow if time allows. Also, there is a new journal in the works right now that will really blow you away. It is slated for release sometime in January.

At least that is what I am hoping for...

Thanks Erik! I took the liberty of cross posting this plus the link to the articles on Armour Archive.

I'm really looking forward to the third volume of the Journal. Do you have back copies of the 2nd one still available, and are there plans to make the first available again?

Yes, there are plenty of the second one available. I will hopefully get that info up today. The first one is going to be reformatted to look like the second one. Perhaps I will have it done along with the third one.
