Abstract

This article describes a mechanism for IBM's Document Interchange Architecture (DIA) mail distributions whereby an enterprise can duplicate the characteristics of a distribution based upon the recipient of the distribution. No mechanism currently exists in DIA whereby different procedures can be executed in the REQUEST-DISTRIBUTION command based upon the classification of the recipient.

Carbon Copying a Distribution Based Upon Recipient

       This article describes a mechanism for IBM's Document
Interchange Architecture (DIA) mail distributions whereby an
enterprise can duplicate the characteristics of a distribution based
upon the recipient of the distribution. No mechanism currently exists
in DIA whereby different procedures can be executed in the
REQUEST-DISTRIBUTION command based upon the classification of the
recipient.

      By providing an operand which identifies the recipient as being
a copy of a multi-destination distribution, an enterprise will be
notified as to whether multiple distributions need to be distributed.
The creation of a self-defining operand, which contains a field which
identifies the recipient's address and a field which identifies if
the intended recipient is to be considered as a copy recipient of the
original distribution, permits enterprises to interpret proper
classifications of a recipient and to provide any constraints on a
recipient of such classification.
