Easy Access to Sender Profile Information

       Disclosed is a technique to allow users quick or
immediate access to sender profile information, thus eliminating the
need for opening the address book and looking up the sender's entry.

      A profile icon will appear next to the "From:" field in the
note itself (see figure).  When users want to see more information
about the sender such as department, position, manager, or phone
number, the user can click on the profile icon and the Sender Profile
window will appear (see figure).

      The sender profile will be customable so users can determine
what kind of information they would like to see.  The profile icon
will be the default.  Users can also choose to have the Sender
Profile window open automatically upon opening the note.

      For users with telephony, the Sender Profile window will have a
Dial pushbutton, allowing the recipient to call the sender.
