Abstract

The present invention simplifies email correspondence by making it possible to store multiple addresses under one email alias so that a user can choose to send a note to one or more of the addressees email servers. In particular, the present invention allows incoming email notes to be shown as coming from an alias as long as the address matches one of the addresses for that alias. It also provides the ability to send to one of several known email addresses for a single person without having to recall multiple aliases or addresses. Also, it is able to send a note to all addresses to either contact a person in an expedient manner or to reestablish contact.
