Abstract

A user may create custom nicknames to facilitate the identification of an individual to send mail to. However, the same individual is inconsistently identified as a sender in received mail. This weakens the association between the individual and the nickname.

Use of Nicknames with Received Mail

A user may create custom nicknames to facilitate the identification of an individual to send mail to. However, the same individual is inconsistently identified as a sender in received mail. This weakens the association between the individual and the nickname.

The solution is to automatically use nicknames to identify the sender in received mail. Additional nickname data is not required since the same nickname is used both when sending mail and in received mail.
