Abstract

This article describes an architecture for providing an object-oriented mail filtering system for OfficeVision*. The OfficeVision desktop provides an electronic mail system which handles document distribution between multiple users. A mail filtering system would provide additional functions for automatically processing mail on behalf of a user. A mail filtering system would perform most of the mail-related tasks that are now performed by a user, such as printing, filing, forwarding and deletion of items in the In-basket.
