A method and apparatus to change the contact list after the mail sent

Problem Description

Problem Description:

:

In our daily works, we need to send kinds of mails to different personals. Some mails need to keep in confidential and only can be known by limited colleagues, in which case we must be careful of the mail id/notes id we input, as there are very similar mail id/notes id only with oneor twocharacter difference.

In case we send a mail to the wrong mail id, the wrong person will reply it to say this is a wrong person. Then the original mail writer wants to change the wrong id to the correct one and hope the other receivers reply to this mail thread should change to the correct id rather than the wrong person.

In current system, there's not a way to implement this, what we can do is only to send a notification to all the receivers to say there's a wrong guy in the previous mail. And please change the id once you reply it. This may be neglected or forgot it when other receiver to do a reply to all action.

In this invention we try to introduce a new method and apparatus to solve this problem. Once the sender of the original mail realize he made a mistake on the mail id/notes id by someone's reminding or self checking, he/she can delete/correct the wrong id and send this notification to the receivers. When the receivers of the original mail try to reply the original mail, it will pop up a window to say the contact list has been changed, show the change detail and recommended the receiver to use the new one.
