Improvement of mail system
1. Purpose
Disclosed is a method for Improvement of E-Mail Functionality. Especially, the invention relates to "Addition of E-Mail Application CHECK function " which solves the following problems.

When e-mails are exchanged, it is not uncommon that a reply is erroneously sent to an old e-mail or a new reply is received during creation of an e-mail to be transmitted, which fails to be consistent with the content of the reply.

The above situation may cause trouble to the recipient and cause important information to be overlooked as a result of the inconsistency between a message and a reply thereto.


2. Solution


Addition of the Following Item to an E-Mail Application Settings (This item is enabled by default) * See Figure 1 below.

"Automatically check the related latest mail before sending mail"

1) When a REPLY button is pressed, the following check tool is run.

E-mails that have been received after the "reply-target e-mail"(e-mail which was selected for reply) are checked. A warning pop up message is displayed when there is any e-mail whose "e-mail title" or "e-mail body" is 90% or more identical to those of the "reply-target e-mail".


2) The above check tool is run again when a SEND button is pressed after creation of a REPLY e-mail.
