Provide Auto-Forwarding Based On Criteria Selected by the User

When a user selects to have mail auto-forwarded, the user may also specify criteria which will determine if auto-forwarding of a particular object will occur.

Users would like to have options for determining if a particular object is to be auto-forwarded.

When a user chooses to have auto-forwarding invoked, the user will be given the capability to choose auto-forward qualifications for objects to be auto- forwarded. This may include object type, class, sender identity, etc., or combinations of these. This will allow the user to prevent the auto-forwarding of certain objects.
