Educational institutions are a very vital section of the society. Their proper functioning contributes to the well being of the community. Screening and scoring is an important phenomenon of these institutions. This project work describes a computerized screening and scoring system which has been introduced in Osun State Polytechnic, Iree, for improving the effectiveness and efficiency of the admission department. The system works under mainframe’s CICS or MVS system environment, and was developed using Visual Basic language.
Electronic mail (e-mail) has become a ubiquitous form of communication in recent years. In general, e-mail works as follows. E-mail software is installed on a client device, e.g. a personal computer (PC), equipped or configured for communication with a plurality of other client devices via a communications network. Software embodied in the e-mail client enables a user of the client device to compose e-mail messages, send e-mail messages to other client devices via the communications network, and read e-mail messages received from other client devices via the communications network. The typical e-mail client supports one or more e-mail protocols such as Post Office Protocol Version 3 (POP3), Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP), Internet Mail Access Protocol Version 4 (IMAP4), or Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME).

E-mail has become a predominant form of communication, both within organizations and among individuals. In many business organizations, each member of the organization has a computer with a network connection on his or her desk. Additionally, many individuals have access to e-mail through private Internet service provider accounts. Accordingly, many people have access to e-mail, by which they may write, send, receive, reply to, and forward e-mail messages quickly and easily. Electronic Scoring
One of the consequences of the proliferation of e-mail is the phenomenon of flaming. Flaming may be defined as computer-mediated communication designed to intimidate by withholding the expected courtesies of polite communication. Sometimes the withholding of respect takes the form of direct aggressiveness against the receiver. Often, flaming takes the form of gross insensitivity and bad taste, not only against the receiver but also against the culture at large. The expression of hate, for its own sake, seems to have a frightening and intimidating effect on human beings. Flamers seem capable of intimidating solely by expressing their hatreds, even if the receiver, who does not share the hate, is not the personal target. Electronic Scoring
Because of its intimidating nature, most people do not like to receive flaming e-email, and they are usually shocked when they read a piece of flaming e-mail. Additionally, while people frequently need to express themselves forcefully, all but the most mean-spirited would prefer not to send e-mail that may be perceived as excessively flaming.
