The services Email<In/Out> in the PWG Job Monitoring MIB
(RFC 2707) were for first class Email services - NOT for the
separate Fax service (SMTP transport or otherwise).
The Samsung prototype of Counter MIB had an EmailOut
service used by the composed services ScanToEmail and
TransformToEmail - it supported *all* document formats
- NOT just image formats like Fax.
Samsung intends to use EmailOut (and probably EmailIn)
in PWG Counter MIB implementations.
Samsung would to keep Email<In/Out> as distinct basic
MFD services in the XML schema and model, please.
