This paper illustrates the use of semantic addresses to send emails in a corporate environment. Semantic Email Addressing (SEA) allows emails to be sent to a semantically specified recipient or group of recipients, which may be dynamically changing overtime. In order to describe the concept of SEA and its advantages, it is compared with the concept of mailing lists. Two solutions to send semantically addressed emails are presented, on one hand a client sided solution has been elaborated where the email is directly sent by the user, on the other hand, a server sided solution is also discussed, where the server sends the emails to the recipient. To make semantic addressing possible attributes which define users who want to use semantic addressing have to be collected. These attributes can be introduced by either the administrator or the user. The attributes must be up to date; that means regular updates must be carried out. A novel update technique which uses the concept of aging is described. Also, finger print authentication was introduced to curb the security problem that characterizes SEA. Unified Modeling Language (UML) tools are used for the system design. The Java programing language was used to implement the prototype application developed to illustrate the concepts described in this work and several tests were successfully carried out on the developed application.
