Abstract

PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To provide a future mail network system where a time difference transfer trust service center is prepared for the information on electronic mails, etc., to accumulate and preserve the electronic mail information which are sent from each of individual transfer trust transmitters and to automatically transfer the electronic mail information to a designated receiver on a future designated transfer date after the electronic mail information is retrieved and extracted unlike a conventional system where the event information are separately stored/preserved or stored by means of a recording medium, etc., and also desired to be transmitted to, to be confirmed by or to be taught to a user himself/herself or a third party on a future specified date for an organization of private persons, establishments, etc.
SOLUTION: The information on the electronic mails, etc., are transmitted from a transmitter to a service center after the receiver and the future transfer date and time are designated and then received, accumulated and preserved by a computer of the service center. These electronic mail information are retrieved, extracted and transferred automatically to a designated receiver on a future designated transfer date. This future mail network system is controlled by connecting the computer of the service center to the electronic information equipment such as personal computers of both transmitter and receiver via the Internet.
