New patent will 'revolutionize e-mail'
by Dennis Sellers, dsellers at maccentral.com

A company called Mail Registry has received a U.S. patent (number 6,427,164)
for the automatic forwarding of e-mail from an old address to a new address,
and several associated processes. Bob Reilly, president of the
three-year-old development-stage company specializing in e-commerce
consulting, said that this patent will revolutionize e-mail mobility,
accessibility and availability.
The patent provides for the automatic delivery of e-mail that has been
returned (bounced) with a non-delivery notice (NDR) from the receiving
e-mail server, providing that the address was correct at one time, but the
account is now inactive or for any other reason not accepting e-mail. Unlike
other approaches to this problem, the patent employs a protocol-oriented
process to correctly forward this e-mail and requires only that the intended
recipient register his new address with Mail Registry, Reilly said.
