Subject: RFC 4141 on SMTP and MIME Extensions for Content Conversion
A new Request for Comments is now available in online RFC libraries.
Title: SMTP and MIME Extensions for Content Conversion
Author(s): K. Toyoda, D. Crocker
Status: Standards Track
Date: November 2005
Mailbox: toyoda.kiyoshi at jp.panasonic.com, dcrocker at bbiw.net
I-D Tag: draft-ietf-fax-esmtp-conneg-13.txt
A message originator sometimes sends content in a form
the recipient cannot process or would prefer not to
process a form of lower quality than is preferred. Such content needs
to be converted to an acceptable form, with the same information or
constrained information (e.g., changing from color to black and
white). In a store-and-forward environment, it may be convenient to
have this conversion performed by an intermediary. This specification
integrates two ESMTP extensions and three MIME content header fields,
which defines a cooperative service that permits authorized,
accountable content form conversion by intermediaries.
This document is a product of the Internet Fax Working Group of the IETF.
This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.
This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for
the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements. Please refer to the current edition of the
"Internet Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the
standardization state and status of this protocol. Distribution
of this memo is unlimited.
This announcement is sent to the IETF list and the RFC-DIST list.
Requests to be added to or deleted from the IETF distribution list
should be sent to IETF-REQUEST at IETF.ORG. Requests to be
added to or deleted from the RFC-DIST distribution list should
be sent to RFC-DIST-REQUEST at RFC-EDITOR.ORG.
