I've stumbled down the same path.

There are a few MCL examples on the MCL 2.0 CD-ROM.
ccl:examples;Webster.Lisp also uses MacTCP.

The C sources for Eudora 1.3.1 (a SMTP/POP mail client) are available, try
anonymous FTP to ftp.qualcomm.com.

TCP/IP will be included in Apple's System 7.5, and so will probably become
more widely used on the Mac. The System 7.5 beta, delivered to developers
on the WWDC 1994 CD-ROM last month, has a few C based examples, and on-line
(Apple DocViewer) MacTCP documentation. This is also available from APDA in
paper form.
