Recognizing the great potential of communication on the Internet, as well as the dire need for news from Greece among Greek Americans and other Greeks who live abroad, G.A.E.P.I.S. established Cosmos Mail. Subscribers to this service daily receive news bulletins, in either Greek or English, free of charge, at their electronic addresses. The news bulletins are comprised of news items from the Hellenic Public Radio news desk, from news agencies, and from the Greek daily Eleftherotypia, whose major news stories are distributed on Cosmos Mail several hours before the paper is available in Athens.

Cosmos Mail & Greek National Issues

The potential of Cosmos Mail to act as a coordinating tool in the effort to advocate for Greek national interests was realized in February of 1994 -- only a month after Cosmos Mail began its operation. As the Clinton Administration moved toward the establishment of formal diplomatic relations with FYROM, our organization in collaboration with the Greek Ambassador to Washington D.C., Hon. Loukas Tsilas, drafted a letter of protest. The letter was then made available on Cosmos Mail. Subscribers were requested to e-mail the letter to the electronic addresses of President Clinton and Vice President Gore, as well as send a copy to us.

More than 1,500 copies of this letter, from around the world, were signed and electronically sent to the White House in just twenty-four hours! We believe that this mobilization of our subscribers played a substantial role in the Administration's decision to postpone the establishment of diplomatic relations with FYROM.

Cosmos Mail will be reactivated beginning June 1, 2000.
