  • Patent number: 10270780
    Abstract: Techniques are described for an access management system to manage access to a service (e.g., a message management service). A client can receive a message including an electronic image from a messaging service. The electronic image can include access information for obtaining access to a message management service. Input is received that indicates interaction with the electronic image in an interface. The client can send, to the access management system, the electronic image to request access to the message management service based on the access information. Authorization is received from the access management system indicating that the account can access the message management service. The client displays an interface to provide access to the message management service. The access to the message management service can be based on the authorization.

  • Patent number: 10178063
    Abstract: A system and method for synchronizing messages between client application instances and a message service provider includes a connection service communicatively coupled to a plurality of client messaging application instances; a first intermediary transfer layer with an inbound message data queue that queues message updates of a client application instance and an outbound message data queue that queues message updates and notifications from a mailbox service layer; a mailbox service layer communicatively coupled to the connection service through the first intermediary transfer layer; a second intermediary transfer layer with an mailbox message data queue that contains queued message data directed at the mailbox service layer and a message service data queue that contains queued message updates directed at a message service layer; and a message service layer configured for message interactions with an outside message service provider.

  • Publication number: 20170187671
    Abstract: Techniques are described for managing drafts of an electronic document (e.g., an electronic note, an electronic message, an electronic calendar invitation, and/or other types of electronic documents) between client devices. Such an electronic document can be composed using different clients, such that composing the document can be continued using different clients. A draft of an electronic document can be stored by clients and/or the message management service as a metadata. A message management service can be implemented as an intermediary computing system to manage a current version of a draft in local storage when a draft is composed using a client device. The message management service can manage version information of a draft that is exists, if any, on each of the client devices. The message management service can synchronize a draft of the message with client devices when a draft is composed using a client device.

  • Patent number: 9680782
    Abstract: Message management services can include processing an email to identify relevant content from among all content in the email and converting the identified relevant content into a simple, easy-to-read format. For example, message management services can apply multiple parsing strategies to an email. Each strategy can attempt to parse the email to identify relevant content and to output results that include any identified relevant content and an associated confidence score. The results having the highest confidence score can be selected. The identified relevant content included in the selected results can be converted into a flat string with stylings and links for displaying relevant content of the email in a simple, easy-to-read format.
