高级电子数据展示中的电子邮件线程Email threading in Advanced eDiscovery

考虑一段时间的电子邮件对话。Consider an email conversation that has been going on for a while. 在大多数情况下,线程上的最后一个电子邮件将包含上述所有电子邮件的内容;查看最后一个电子邮件将提供在线程中发生的对话的完整上下文。In most cases, the last email on the thread will include the contents of all the preceding emails; reviewing the last email will give a complete context of the conversation that happened in the thread. 电子邮件线程识别此类电子邮件,以便审阅者可以在不丢失任何上下文的情况下查看所收集的文档的一部分。Email threading identifies such emails so that reviewers can review a fraction of collected documents without losing any context.

电子邮件线程处理的功能是什么?What does email threading do?

电子邮件线程分析每封电子邮件并将其 deconstructs 给各个邮件;每封电子邮件是单个邮件的链。Email threading parses each email and deconstructs it to individual messages; each email is a chain of individual messages. 然后,它将分析评审集中的所有电子邮件,以确定电子邮件是否具有唯一内容,或者如果该链完全包含在不同的电子邮件中。Then, it analyzes all emails in the review set to determine whether an email has unique content or if the chain is wholly contained in a different email. 在最终电子邮件中分为四个类别:In the end emails are divided into four categories:

  • 包含:电子邮件中的最后一封邮件具有唯一内容,并且电子邮件包含其他电子邮件中包含的所有附件,这些附件中的内容完全包含在此电子邮件中。Inclusive: the last message in the email has unique content, and the email has all of the attachments that were included in other emails of which the content is wholly contained in this email.

  • 包含减去:电子邮件中的最后一封邮件具有唯一内容,但电子邮件不包含其他电子邮件中包含的某些附件,这些附件中的内容完全包含在此电子邮件中。Inclusive minus: the last message in the email has unique content, but the email does not contain some of the attachments that were included in other emails of which the content is wholly contained in this email.

  • 包含副本:包含/包含的减号电子邮件的精确副本Inclusive copy: an exact copy of an inclusive/inclusive minus email

  • None:此电子邮件的内容完全包含在至少一个标记为包含/包含减号的电子邮件中。None: The content of this email is wholly contained in at least one email that is marked as inclusive/inclusive minus.

它与 Outlook 中的对话有何不同?How is it different from conversations in Outlook?

这听起来类似于 Outlook 中的对话分组。At a glance, this sounds similar to conversation groupings in Outlook. 但是,存在一些重要区别。However, there are some important distinctions. 考虑获取两个对话的电子邮件对话;例如,有人对对话中不是最新的电子邮件做出响应,因此对话中的最后两封电子邮件具有独特的内容。Consider an email conversation that got forked into two conversations; for instance, someone responded to an email that is not the latest in the conversation so the last two emails in the conversation both have unique content.

Outlook 仍会将电子邮件组合到单个对话中;仅读取最后一个电子邮件意味着缺少第二到最后一个电子邮件的上下文,这也会包含唯一内容。Outlook would still group the emails into a single conversation; reading only the last email would mean missing the context of the second-to-last email, which also contains unique content. 由于电子邮件线程处理将每封电子邮件解析为单个组件并对它们进行比较,因此电子邮件线程处理会将最后两封电子邮件标记为包含在内,从而确保您在阅读所有标记为非独占的电子邮件时不会丢失任何上下文。Because email threading parses out each email into individual components and compares them, email threading would mark both of the last two emails as inclusive, ensuring that you won't miss any context as long as you read all emails marked as inclusive.
