Abstract

Existing e-mail systems allow senders to include attachments. Similarly, many e-mail systems allow users to save copies of sent mail, and virtually all systems allow senders to CC and/or BCC themselved to accomplish the same goal. We disclose a solution that reduces the size of saved sent e-mail. This solution allows a user to specify whether the attachments should be retained in the saved copy of the sent mail.
