There are many schools in South Africa who use UUCP for their mail, since
they have dial-up connections. Organisations like the Western Cape Schools'
Network, and various others provide these UUCP feeds.
There is a software package called Thurn (for MS-DOS) and Taxis (for Win32)
which incluses the UUCP/extended software. For more informaton
about taxis look @ http://www.wcape.school.za/taxis/
The UUCP solution works well in the educational environment as well as in
corporate environments. YMMV.
