Abstract

A method is described for processing unsolicited messages. An unsolicited message is any message sent without a request for the information between two or more communicating devices or applications. Most applications do not detect or respond to unsolicited messages. An unsolicited message normally requires a response from the solicited application before normal communication can be resumed.
