Abstract

Find matches in the sender’s personal or global address book and resolve matched recipient names into messaging addresses in a manner that is transparent to the sender A typical user of a mobile messaging device frequently composes and sends messages to recipients that are stored in their address book. The internet messaging address is usually difficult to remember and/or enter on a mobile messaging device. Transparent address book resolution allows the sender of a message to enter a partial name for each of the message’s recipients. It will attempt to resolve each entered name into an internet messaging address. It first searches the sender’s personal address book, and if a suitable match is not found, it then searches the sender’s global address book. If there is a match, the message is sent with no need for user intervention. If there is more than one suitable match, the sender is prompted to select the correct one from a list. Only if there are no suitable matched is the sender is prompted to enter the internet messaging address. Transparent Address Book Resolution does not require the user to navigate through multiple screens.
