A method and system of forwarding messages to a subscriber. The invention includes a host server for receiving messages from a communications network. The message is forwarded to at least one of a plurality of devices associated with the subscriber. The host server will receive a signal from one of the devices indicating that the subscriber has received the message. After receiving this signal, the message is deleted from the other devices to which it was sent to ensure redundant messages are not received by the subscriber. The invention may use a multi-cast, probabilistic, or hybrid approach to deliver the messages to subscriber on a convenient device.
