Groupwise updating mailbox decompressing

A method for detecting and eliminating viruses introduced by an electronic mail system includes polling the postal node for unscanned messages, downloading the messages into a memory of a node, and performing virus detection and analysis at the node.a retrieval module, in communication with the message detecting module and the virus analyzing module, for obtaining a copy of the data associated with the message and providing the copy of data to the virus analyzing module.4.

The nodes 30, 32 are coupled together to form a network by a plurality of network connections 36.

For example, the nodes 30, 32 may be connected together using a token ring format, ethernet format or any of the various other formats known in the art.

The apparatus of claim 3, wherein the message is intended for access by a first node, the message detecting module and the virus treatment module reside at a server; and the virus treatment module includes routines for performing a preset action on the message when a virus is detected in the message.15.

The apparatus of claim 14, wherein the preset action performed by the virus treatment module comprises at least one of: allowing message access by the first node without changing the message, preventing message access by the first node, notifying a party regarding the presence of the virus, and modifying the message to remove the virus.16.

concurrently send a first predetermined portion of each of the plurality of objects through the network, wherein the first predetermined portion is less than a complete object for at least one of the plurality of objects; and after sending the first predetermined portion of each of the plurality of objects, successively send subsequent predetermined portions of each of the plurality of objects until all portions of the plurality of objects have been sent; and after receiving the first predetermined portion of each of the plurality of objects, successively receive subsequent predetermined portions of each of the plurality of objects until all portions of each of the plurality of objects have been received.

, wherein the client side sub-system is further configured to, before receiving, send a request for multimedia content, where the request comprises information related to the sending of objects, and the server side sub-system is further configured to receive the request and send the multimedia content in accordance with the request.

, wherein the receiving a first predetermined portion is handled using a Hyper-Text Transfer Protocol connection and the receiving subsequent predetermined portions is handled using another predetermined protocol connection after the Hyper-Text Transfer Protocol connection has closed.

where first predetermined portions of each of the at least one of the plurality of objects are available in the cache but subsequent predetermined portions of each of the at least one of the plurality of objects are not available in the cache, sending a request for the subsequent predetermined portions without receiving the first predetermined portions.
