Abstract

When selecting names from an address book or sending messages to multiple users, the initiator of the message should be able to select primary recipi- ents and carbon copy recipients. Sometimes there is a need to send a message to a primary user, but the initiator also wants a secondary user to receive the same information, even though the message is not necessarily directed to them. Currently, both recipi- ents would receive the message as if they were the primary recipients. There should be a distinction between a primary and a secondary recipient in the header information of the message.
