  • Patent number: 9288348
    Abstract: A communication apparatus includes an authentication unit, a retaining unit, an input unit, an extraction unit, a display, and a setting unit. The authentication unit authenticates a user. The retaining unit retains pieces of job history information each including information regarding a sender and at least one destination among an email address, a facsimile number, path information, and an address. To the input unit, an instruction for specifying a data destination from the pieces of job history information is inputted. The extraction unit extracts, in a case where the instruction has been inputted, pieces of job history information in each of which the authenticated user is indicated as either one of the sender and the destination. The display lists and displays all destinations included in the extracted pieces of job history information. The setting unit sets a destination selected from among the listed and displayed destinations, as the data destination.
