Abstract

Currently an email can be sent to a group of people, and blind recipients can also be added. However, any secret message for the blind recipients can not be added on current email features available in the market place presently. The idea is to allow in the type a secret message for the blind recipient, which can only be seen by the blind recipient. This message can be written either in the main email text area, or any other area of the email. A further enhancement of the idea will allow multiple secret messages sent to multiple separate blind recipients. That is a separate message for blind recipient "A" and a separate message for blind recipient "B" can be sent, and blind recipient "A" should not be able see the message for blind recipient "B". Similar should be true for blind recipient "B". 1

Sending email secret messages to the blind copy recipient

Currently an email can be sent to a group of people, and blind recipients can
also be added. However, any secret message for the blind recipients can not
be added on current email features available in the market place presently.

   The idea is to allow in the type a secret message for the blind recipient,
which can only be seen by the blind recipient. This message can be written
either in the main email text area, or any other area of the email.

   A further enhancement of the idea will allow multiple secret messages sent
to multiple separate blind recipients. That is a separate message for blind
recipient "A" and a separate message for blind recipient "B" can be sent, and
blind recipient "A" should not be able see the message for blind recipient
"B". Similar should be true for blind recipient "B".
