Disclosed is a method for a notification of changes to the "cc" and "to" with an email trail
with an email trail
Email is one of the most common and heavily relied upon methods for communication today. Thus, it is important to know when you have received a new email with an established email trail, especially if the "To:" and "CC:" have been changed. This may impact on one's response to a given email. This is especially important when the email trail may involve customer information, and any new additions to the "To:" and "CC:" may contain customer's email address. Extra cautions may be needed when additional "To:" or "CC:" addresses are added.
The information of the original mailing list is embedded in the email trail, so any changes to the "To:" and "CC:" are easily detected by the email application.
A straight forward string comparison between the previous email and the current email in the email trail is performed. If there is a difference, then an indicator will be added to the email list. For example, when the user opens the email, the added user's name may be highlighted either with Bold or a different color, or both.
