Identifying the Actual Recipient of an Undelivered Distribution

       This article describes a mechanism for IBM's Document
Interchange Architecture (DIA) mail distributions whereby an
enterprise can notify the originator as to who was the actual
recipient of the distribution when the distribution was not delivered
to the intended recipient.

      Current notifications of undelivered mail to an originator of a
distribution are contained in the Un-Delivered  Mail Log Status
Document. By providing a self-defining field within the Un-Delivered
Mail Log Status Document which contains a character string to
identify the actual recipient of the distribution, an enterprise can
notify the originator as to who is the actual recipient of a
distribution.

      This mechanism provides the capability of notifying the
originator if the distribution has been delivered to the intended
recipient and allows the originator to correspond to the actual
recipient of the distribution.
