Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR ACCESSING AND RETRIEVING MESSAGES
(FR) PROCEDE ET DISPOSITIF PERMETTANT D'ACCEDER A DES MESSAGES ET DE LES EXTRAIRE
Abstract:
(EN) A method and apparatus are disclosed in which a Uniform Resource Locator, which pinpoints an electronic message storage address or location, is embedded in or attached to an e-mail notification message sent to an intended recipient. Once notified, the intended recipient, in just one step, uses a WWW-aware mail reader (browser) to click on a link in the notification message window. The mail reader can thereby directly access the message storage location and retrieve the message for viewing or listening. In order to ensure that the embedded or attached Uniform Resource Locator is valid and has been received from a bona fide source, the Uniform Resource Locator can be tagged with a random encryption key. Also, an intended recipient of an electronically stored message can interactively elect to have the message delivered via a telephone connection instead of a data network.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé et un dispositif selon lequel un localisateur de ressources uniformes ou 'URL' $i((Uniform Resource Locator)), qui désigne l'adresse ou l'emplacement mémoire d'un message électronique, est imbriqué dans, ou attaché à, un message de notification de courrier électronique envoyé à un destinataire désigné. Une fois qu'il est averti, le destinataire désigné n'a besoin que d'une opération pour utiliser un navigateur Internet pour cliquer sur un lien dans la fenêtre du message de notification. Le navigateur est ainsi capable d'accéder directement à l'emplacement mémoire du message et à l'extraire pour visionnage ou écoute. Pour garantir que l'URL inclus ou attaché est correct et provient d'une source de bonne foi, l'URL peut être pourvu d'une étiquette comportant une clé de cryptage aléatoire. De la même façon, un destinataire désigné d'un message stocké électroniquement peut choisir de façon interactive de se faire remettre le message via une connexion téléphonique et non plus via un réseau télématique.
