Consultation via Internet is becoming increasingly common for patients with psychiatric illnesses. We report on the e-mail-correspondence with a young woman (according to her own statement), taking medical advice for depressive symptoms via Internet. The correspondence focuses on the difficulties of the consulter to find and accept adequate (professional) support in the "real world". On the basis of this case report, advantages and limitations of the communication via Internet are discussed.
