Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0062145A1] Continuous and automatic update and display of email and other information using a screen saver on a display vehicle, for notification of received email (602), and other information (604) to multiple users of a single computer or similar device. The system delivers regular and timely information on a scheduled, hands-free basis directly to a display including but not limited to a user's computer monitor, Web TV screen, or any other display used with an information appliance. This information is comprised of new email messages (602) and advertisements (603), having a plurality of protocols. The system is a combination of user software and server-side services to allow a computer to automatically connect providers and retrieve updates of the information to be displayed. Email notification (602) and advertising content (603) are then displayed as a screen saver or other icon (601) without end user intervention.
