Abstract:

The message server comprises access means (6, 9) for granting each terminal access to the message originating form terminals which use identification codes belonging to the same group of identification codes. The identification codes within each group can be identical (ABC, DEF) or non-identical (a, b, c, ...); in which latter case the message server comprises grouping means (9, 10) for arranging the identification codes into groups. The message server comprises means (7, 8) for 'store and foward' and for 'real time' message exchange, as well as for keeping track of which message originates from which terminal, for keeping track of which message has been retrieved by which terminal and for keeping track on a group by group basis of which terminals are simultaneously connected to the message server.
