 For example, whether “the device grants mail device access to user accounts which have user email addresses, or something else” goes to the breadth of the claim, not its definiteness.  Cf. In re Robins, 429 F.2d 452, 458 (CCPA 1970) (“Giving the language its broadest possible meaning, as we are bound to do in the absence of special definitions by appellant, the breadth of the claims insofar as the catalyst is concerned is indeed immense.  However, ‘Breadth is not indefiniteness.’  In re Gardner, 427 F.2d 786 [, 788], 57 CCPA [1207] (1970).”)  We reach the same conclusion as to the other allegedly unclear limitations.  The rejection is not sustained.  

Robins, In re, 429 F.2d 452, 166 USPQ 552 (CCPA 1970) 2163
