Title: E-MAIL PROGRAM CAPABLE OF TRANSMITTING, OPENING AND PRESENTING A CONTAINER HAVING DIGITAL CONTENT USING EMBEDDED EXECUTABLE SOFTWARE
Abstract:
An e-mail message enhancement apparatus is preferably implemented through a sequence of program instructions. On the sender side, creation software implements a data format that allows for differing types of content, such as visual images, audio, multimedia, and functional attributes such as links to a sender's home page on the world wide web. Furthermore, in addition to such content in the e-mail message, there is included header information, including the e-mail address of the sender, and recipient executable embedded software that ensures the recipient will be able to view contents and perform the functional attributes that make up the e-mail message.
