Having never looked at WinLink before, I have a basic question:  Is the WinLink a closed system, only accessible via a wireless Pactor modem or does it have gateways that allow access to the internet?

You can send e-mail via the Internet to a WinLink station. A WinLink station can send e-mail to other e-mail receipients via the Internet.

Can WinLink 2000 be used between two hams without the
Internet? If not, is there any Email exchange program
that can be used without the Internet between two or
more stations?

You can get all your questions answered at http://www.winlink.org/

I believe you can send mail to another WinLink ham. He can pick it up via HF or a VHF/UHF packet link.

You can send station to station, Via your computer to any E-Mail address, Radio to PMBO (A system which handles Airmail and sends your message Via the internet0. and via a VHF TELPAC ( a VHF station which connects to a PMBO and passes your E-Mail via packet)I would also recommend the following site:http://www.wrock.nhradio.org/wl2k.htm in addition to the WinLink 2000 site. Have fun there is a lot of instrunctions out there. For HF you will need a PACTOR Modem it does not have to be a SCS but you will be limited to PACTOR 1 a selection is in the AIRMAIL Program and is some what limited.

Thanks for all the replies, but that's not what I'm
looking for. I'm looking for a software program(s)
that will allow me to send email from point A to Point B
(regardless of band/frequency) and WITHOUT any usage
or interface of the Internet. Thank you.

You can use AirMail2000 to send email type formatted messages "peer to peer" aka radio to radio, no internet involved. It also has a VHF packet module in it. You can also use Pactor I on HF with an AEA PK232MBX TNC. None of this requires the internet. To send a message, it simply gets address "CALLSIGN@CALLSIGN" instead of "CALLSIGN@WL2K". Therefore it goes direct to the station. You would of course, have to determine a frequency to use beforehand.
