    Abstract

    Asynchronous messaging systems like e-mail systems need some advanced characteristics, such as intelligence, controllability and scalability, to accomplish more effective and sophisticated message handling. In this paper, we propose a framework of next generation messaging systems, Flexible Asynchronous Messaging System (FAMES), which consists of autonomous and collaborative software agents. In FAMES, various messaging functions composed by agents can be utilized to integrate heterogeneous user environment. Moreover, FAMES operates message flow in intelligent manner, considering the receiver's own convenience and the flexible message delivery can be achieved. We designed and implemented the proposed system based on multi-agent technology, and show its effectiveness through the experimental studies using a prototype system.
