    A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts
    This draft is a work item of the Internet Fax Working Group of the IETF.

            Title : SMTP Service Extension for Content Negotiation
            Author(s) : K. Toyoda, D. Crocker
            Filename : draft-ietf-fax-esmtp-conneg-02.txt
            Pages :
            Date : 25-Jun-02
    This document defines a content negotiation service
    extension for SMTP [ESMTP1, ESMTP2] whereby an SMTP
    client may request information about content
    capabilities of the target device or system that is
    serviced by an SMTP server. The SMTP server may report
    the target's content capabilities back to the client.
    This process emulates a classic facsimile start-of-
    session capabilities negotiation, although it can be used
    for a broad range of email-based scenarios. This service
    extension is primarily intended for 'direct', one-hop,
    originator/recipient SMTP transfers, although relayed
    scenarios through multiple SMTP servers are permitted.

    NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
            MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
            feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
            command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
            a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
            exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
            "multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
            up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
            how to manipulate these messages.
    Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
    implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
