Abstract

When selecting names from an address book or sending messages to multiple users, the initiator of the message should be able to select primary recipi- ents and carbon copy recipients. Sometimes there is a need to send a message to a primary user, but the initiator also wants a secondary user to receive the same information, even though the message is not necessarily directed to them. Currently, both recipi- ents would receive the message as if they were the primary recipients. There should be a distinction between a primary and a secondary recipient in the header information of the message.

"CARBON COPY" MESSAGE INITIATION

by Mario Riveron

STATEMENT OF PROBLEM

  When selecting names from an address book or sending messages to multiple users, the initiator of the message should be able to select primary recipi- ents and carbon copy recipients. Sometimes there is a need to send a message to a primary user, but the initiator also wants a secondary user to receive the same information, even though the message is not necessarily directed to them. Currently, both recipi- ents would receive the message as if they were the

primary recipients. There should be a distinction between a primary and a secondary recipient in the header information of the message.

SOLUTION

  A 2-Way unit would have a "CC:" option. The user would be able to select between "TO:" and "CC:" in the "Send Option" of a 2-Way messag- ing unit.
