Title: Auto organization hierarchy traversal in email addressees

Abstract: A method for automatic hierarchy traversal in email addressees. The method includes parsing an entry in an email addressee field and determining if the entry includes a predefined notation appended to the entry. If the entry has a predefined notation appended to the entry, then the hierarchy structure for the name in the entry is traversed based on the predefined notation. The predefined notation includes a special character to identify the direction of traversal and a level indicator to identify the level of traversal. Email addresses for each name listed at the designated level of the hierarchy structure are retrieved and the entry in the email addressee field is replaced with the retrieved email addresses.
