Just a general query. I seem to recall reading somewhere that when emails were first sent through cyberspace they were, for security purposes, split up and sent in numerous bits over numerous paths to finally arrive at their destination where they were reassembled. Does this still happen or am I living in the past?

It's a bit long-winded but interesting for all that!

Thank you Clapton is God. Yes, the answer was a bit long-winded but then it is a pretty complicated procedure.
What a wonderful enterprise Helproom is!
