FLANNEL: adding computation to electronic mail during transmission
In this paper, we describe FLANNEL, an architecture for adding computational capabilities to email. FLANNEL allows email to be modified by an application while in transit between sender and receiver. This modification is done without modification to the endpoints— -mail clients— -at either end. This paper also describes interaction techniques that we have developed to allow senders of email to quickly and easily select computations to be performed by FLANNEL. Through our experience, we explain the properties that applications must have in order to be successful in the context of FLANNEL.
