Proposed is a system to indicate that a manager or multiple managers for an individual should be included on an email thread. Advantages Sender does not need to manually go and look up who the appropriate individuals are to include on the message. If the appropriate individuals change due to a reorganization, the user won't accidentally send the message to the wrong people. Grabs the attention of the recipient that the message is important if an individual of higher power/importance is included. The use of LDAP or similar services to properly identify individuals is well-known, this could include the proper identification of person whose names might be misspelled or who might have changed names due to marriage. Therefore, less errors in sending.
