### Corresponding author envelope sign

As per the rule of my Springer Journal, the corresponding author is identified by a envelope sign within bracket just after the name of the author. Please help me to give the envelope sign within bracket.

Why not simply define a new command which inserts a graphic file inside the brackets beside the author name? BTW, how do you insert authors' names? Any automated process or manually, by typing them? Which document class? Do you use a template/class created for Springer publications? A Minimal Working Example (MWE) would be useful here.

Here's an example (envelope drawing in the attachment):

The marvosym and ifsym packages each provide a command:

\Letter

which produces an envelope that looks like that. Is that what you need?

More than likely, however, if this is a requirement for using their document class, the documentation they circulate with it should tell you how to do it. Where can one find this documentation?

What a trivial answer. It seems that you still haven't learned how to describe a problem clearly. Please be precise in your problem description. Build a minimal working example (MWE) that reproduces the undesired behaviour and add the log file if necessary. Otherwise specific help will be impossible. So its in your own interest that you are clear and precise.

Done.
The code I have used is as follows
\usepackage[misc,geometry]{ifsym}

and used
\Letter after the name of the corresponding author

I search for these information for the whole day. Springer template is really annoying. It does not provide any useful tutorial on its website.
