Abstract

A method is described which allows a user to configure a specific header, footer or attachment to a set of strings which may be composed within a mail distribution. It is desirable to automatically generate a footer, header or attachment to a mail distribution, depending upon certain content which may be in the distribution. For example, the user may want to have the text "CONFIDENTIAL" automatically appended as a footer or header to a mail note when project keywords such as "PROJECT X" or "PROJECT Y" are detected in the mail note. A method is needed for automatically generating an arbitrary footer, header or attachment with a mail distribution upon detection of specified matter within the distribution.
