Abstract

We proposed a method to filter the same replying mail automatically, and mark this mail.If some message or email was already read, the embedded message in such message might not need to be read. Necessary time and effort could be saved. The method can be extended from reading message to other actions on contents with some parent-child relationship, such as flag messages, etc.
