L'application logicielle de gestion de transmission des données de cette invention comprend également une application téléphonique stockée dans la mémoire, cette application téléphonique contenant une base de données destinée à stocker plusieurs cartes de visite. Chacune de ces cartes de visite identifie des caractéristiques propres à un fournisseur dont le courrier électronique doit être reçu ou envoyé. Une ou plusieurs de ces cartes de visite comprennent un agent cartes de visite associé, défini par une routine logicielle agent, qui gère la transmission de courrier électronique entre l'utilisateur et ce fournisseur. Une application de messagerie initie la transmission afin de transmettre ou de recevoir du courrier électronique. L'application téléphonique et l'application de messagerie permettent de déterminer si un agent carte de visite est associé à la carte de visite d'un fournisseur dont le courrier électronique doit être envoyé ou reçu par l'intermédiaire de ladite application téléphonique, et en réponse, ces applications exécutent le programme logiciel agent pour gérer la transmission de ce courrier électronique.
