    New patent will 'revolutionize e-mail'

    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.
