HTML file in the database has a different URL. Next, the biff dispatcher generates a notice comprising the summary and the URL, and delivers it to the user’s mobile phone, whose address is registered in the database in advance. When users receive the notice, they can click the URL attached to the summary to read the whole message. After the URL analyzer decodes the URL and gets the message ID, the user accesses the HTML files stored in the database based on the message ID and reads the message as a Web page. 3 E-mail Summarizer Many approaches to sentence extraction have been proposed (e.g., Mani and Maybury, 1999). These approaches are effective for summarizing news articles, but they cannot be applied to e-mail messages as they are for two reasons. One is that the document structure of e-mails is more complex than that of news articles. For example, most e-mail messages contain quoted messages, signatures, tables, itemizations or return codes inserted at line ends, which may interrupt sentences. The other is that most e-mail messages do not use lead or topic sentences such as those that often appear in news articles. Thus information about sentence positions and important keywords is not as effective in summarizing e-mail messages as it is in news articles
