LISTING OF THE CLAIMS 

Claims 1-62. (Cancelled) 

63. (Previously Presented) A method of redirecting data 
messages between a messaging host system and a wireless mobile 
communication device, comprising: 

receiving a data message at the messaging host system for a 
user, wherein the data message is received from a sender and 
addressed to a first address of the user associated with the 
messaging host system; 

detecting the data message at the messaging host system; 

forwarding a copy of the data message from the messaging 
host system to a wireless redirector host system via a wide area 
network connection between the messaging host system and the 
wireless redirector host system; 

processing the copy of the data message to repackage it with 
an outer envelope having a second address that is associated with 
the user's wireless mobile communication device; 

upon determining that the repackaged copy of the data 
message should be redirected from the wireless redirector host

envelope from the wireless mobile communication device, the outer 
envelope having an address associated with the wireless 
redirector host system; and 

removing the outer envelope of the repackaged reply message 
at wireless redirector host system and causing the reply message 
to be transmitted to the sender of the data message wherein the 
user's first address is configured as the reply message's

system to determine whether the particular user's data messages 
should be forwarded to the wireless redirector host system. 

66. (Previously Presented) The method of claim 65, 
wherein the forwarding file includes a list of network addresses 
associated with the wide area network connection where the user's 
data messages should be forwarded by the messaging host system.

67. (Previously Presented) The method of claim 63, 
further comprising the steps of: 

configuring a set of filtering rules for use by the wireless 
redirector host system in determining whether the data message 
should be redirected to the user's wireless mobile communication 
device; and 

providing an access mechanism that allows the user to 
remotely configure and reconfigure the filtering rules by 
connecting to the wireless redirector host system from a remote 
terminal . 

68. (Previously Presented) The method of claim 63, 
further comprising the steps of: 

configuring a user profile database for use by the wireless 
redirector host system in determining whether the data message 
should be redirected to the user's wireless mobile communication 
device; and 

providing an access mechanism that allows a system 
administrator of the messaging host system to remotely configure 
and reconfigure the user profile database by connecting to the 
wireless redirector host system from a remote terminal.

Claims 69-74. (Cancelled) 

75. (Previously Presented) The method of claim 63, 
further comprising the step of: 

transmitting a deactivation message associated with the user 
of the wireless mobile communication device to the wireless 
redirector host system; and 

upon receiving the deactivation message, prohibiting the 
redirection of data messages for the user sending the 
deactivation message. 

76. (Previously Presented) The method of claim 63, 
wherein the determining step includes the steps of: 

accessing a user profile database including a list of 
authorized users; and 

checking whether the user associated with the data message 
is an authorized user to determine whether the data message 
should be redirected to the user's wireless mobile communication 
device .

77. (Previously Presented) The method of claim 63, 
wherein the determining step includes the steps of: 

accessing a filter rules database including a list of 
filters to be applied to data messages for a particular user; and 

applying the filters to the data message to determine 
whether the data message should be redirected to the user's 
wireless mobile communication device. 

Claim 78. (Cancelled) 

79. (Previously Presented) The method of claim 63, 
wherein the user's wireless mobile communication device is a 
laptop computer. 

80. (Previously Presented) The method of claim 63, 
wherein the user' s wireless mobile communication device is a two- 
way paging computer.
