After looking at the central patent in question (#5,436,960), specifically the technical diagrams, It would look like the patent covers several other technologies that are now becoming very popular, specifically wireless SOHO networks, that make use of RF wireless routers, use standard email systems that connect to a central distribution 'gateway' owned by the ISP or provider, and require a 'push' or timed 'pull' type of technology to move emails from the central servers that recieve the emails to the external desktops, connected to the central station via a wireless network. These standard email programs, when combined with a wireless network appear to create a system is described in the patent.
