Like being able to use telnet and being able to read your mail? I don't
think so. If you know HTML, I would include that under 'skills'.
I have a private account, but I also put on my resume that I've been on
the net since 1981, just because that's fairly unusual. (Particularly for
someone who has been in non-geek-related work for most of their lives.)
