Abstract

A method is described for screening mail information without requiring the user to explicitly enter the mail server function. A mail notification message is normally ambiguous, for example: "MAIL WAITING". The message could mean that one message is waiting for many messages. The user cannot determine who the message is from or where the message originated from. If the user requires additional information about the mail, the mail server must be invoked to receive or reject the message.
