Abstract

This article describe 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 and may wish to conceal that multiple copies of a document were distributed. No mechanism currently exists in DIA whereby different procedures can be executed in the REQUEST-DISTRIBUTION command based upon the classification of the recipient.

Blind Copying a Distribution Based Upon Recipient Classification

       This article describe 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 and may wish to conceal that
multiple copies of a document were distributed. 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 blind copy recipient of a multi-destination distribution, an
enterprise will be notified as to whether multiple distributions need
to be distributed and to conceal information about the blind copy
recipients receiving the distribution.

      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 blind 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.
