This research identifies and defines a new subfield of information hiding research. A comprehensive scrubbing framework is developed. Metrics are defined for the purpose of accurately evaluating the success of the scrubbing techniques developed. The results of the research are put into practical use by their inclusion in a prototype mail server with scrubbing functionality.The program provided is compatible with common email protocols including IMAP, SMTP, and POP3, making it versatile for use in commercial environments. ... image files by combining compiled MatLab code implementing the scrubbing into the open source, object oriented hMailServer C++ code. ... The design of the hMailServer employs the use of MySql, a freeware database, for storage of email data.
