After a user sends another user a message through the portal or a user receives an SMS; if that message remains unread for five minutes then an email is sent out to the receiving user's email with a transcript of the previous ten messages in the conversation. After this email is sent out there will not be another email unless the original sender sends another message after the email went out.
The system will perform a check every minute which will automatically initiate this alert for any users with unread messages needing notification.
For branding, the system will automatically take on any color or logos provided for portal branding
