The service con­sist­ing in sending text messages between com­put­ers was invented in 1971 by Ray Tom­lin­son. Pre­vi­ous­ly, mail could be sent only to others who used the same com­put­er. To achieve this,"Ray" he used the @ sign to separate the user name from the name of their machine, a scheme which has been used in email ad­dress­es ever since.
