BioMail automates searching for recent scientific papers in the PubMed Medline database, and can periodically run a customized Medline search and send all recent matching articles to the user's e-mail address. You can save search patterns: no more remembering which search was good and which wasn't. It is intended for medical researchers, biologists, and anyone who wants to know the latest information about a disease or a biological phenomenon. It is also useful for users who have email address but slow or sporadic Web access; they can set up searches and have them emailed to an address instead of having to surf the Web themselves for the information.
