In this article, two Internet applications written in Mathematica are introduced. The applications enable reading/writing e-mail and browsing WWW pages within Mathematica in the same fashion with other general Internet applications. "In-place-evaluation" of Mathematica expressions embedded in e-mails and WWW pages is supported. For implementing the applications, MathLink and new properties of Mathematica 3.0, especially notebook manipulating functions, are used. The possibilities of Mathematica, as an Internet accessing tool and as a software platform, will be discussed.
