Company Confidential Classification for a Distribution

       This article describes a mechanism for IBM's Document
Interchange Architecture (DIA) mail distributions whereby an
originator can convey a classification for a distribution which
signifies that the distribution should be treated according to
company specific procedures. No mechanism currently exists in DIA
whereby an originator of a distribution can specify a classification
which represents that the distribution should be handled according to
a company's specific procedures.

      The ATTRIBUTE-LIST operand of the REQUEST-DISTRIBUTION command
of DIA mail services contains a self-defining field,
Mail-Classification field, which identifies particular delivery
classification for a distribution. By providing a value within this
field which represents that the distribution is to be handled
according to a company's specific procedures permits enterprises to
create specific procedures for manipulating a document for
distribution and to convey such information to the recipient of the
distribution.  This mechanism permits an enterprise to implement
security procedures for such classifications.
