Technique of using arithmetic operator to exclude undesired recipients from a emailing/distribution list in email communication.

A feature of mass communication in any organization through emails introduces emailing lists. A emailing list consists of a group of individual email users. A challenge in selective mass communication in any organization through emails introduces information to be passed to all recipients of a emailing list. This publish artical aims at introducing a mechanism of using arithmetic operator on existing emailing lists to prevent an individual or other emailing list of a emailing list to be excluded from receiving a particular email sent using the existing emailing list.

Eliminating messages to a specific recipient in a emailing list through a common email is currently not possible in current scenario of sending a single mail to all using emailing list by excluding a particular individual recipient or a other emailing list. To satisfy this would require individual email addresses of an existing mailing list to exclude the individual recipient who is

part of a common mailing list.

This article aims at proposing an alternative mechanism to address the issue of excluding individual email or other emailing list recipients from an email sent to a emailing list. This could be achieved by introducing arithmetic operator and a mechanism in the emailing system that could evaluate the introduced operator on a emailing list.


1. Identifying a common mailing list:


The information that needs to be shared in an organization requires identifying a group of people who requires to be informed about a specific information, which is traditionally done based on various factors including the department the individual works in that organization.
