    Hi Harry,

    Agreed - we should have defined an email (specifically SMTP) job
    submission channel long ago. Many printers have this feature.
    Using 'other(1)' is _bad_.

    I suspect a few parameters (like the IPP three musketeers) about
    authentication and security modes to use would be appropriate
    (like listing SASL, S/MIME, PGP, XML Digital Signatures, etc.).

    Cheers,
    - Ira McDonald

    Some printers have implemented printing of e-mail attachments. It would be
    benificial to enumrate a seperate channel for this behavior. Even though
    we have not standardized the implementation I would like to propose an
    additional to PrtChannelTypeTC along the lines of :

    chSMTP(45) -- Print job submission via SMTP.
               -- Keyword: Mailto
               -- Syntax: Name
               -- Status: Mandatory
               -- Multiplicity: Single
               -- Default: not applicable
               -- Description: E-mail sent to this address will be printed

    What do others think about this idea?
