    Subject: Protocol Action: A Simple Mode of Facsimile Using Internet Mail
    to Draft Standard

    The IESG has approved the Internet-Draft 'A Simple Mode of Facsimile
    Using Internet Mail' <draft-ietf-fax-service-v2-05.txt> as a Draft
    Standard. This document obsoletes RFC2305.

    This document is a product of the Internet Fax Working Group. The
    IESG contact persons are Ned Freed and Patrik Faltstrom.
       
    Technical Summary

        This specification provides for "simple mode" carriage of facsimile
        data using Internet mail. Extensions to this document will follow.
        The current specification employs standard protocols and file formats
        such as TCP/IP, Internet mail protocols, MIME, and Tagged Image File
        Format (TIFF) for Facsimile. It can send images not only to other
        Internet-aware facsimile devices but also to Internet-native systems,
        such as PCs with common email readers which can handle MIME mail and
        TIFF for Facsimile data. The specification facilitates communication
        among existing facsimile devices, Internet mail agents, and the
        gateways which connect them.

    Working Group Summary
       
        This document is a revision of RFC 2305. There have been no technical
        changes from the previous version.
       
    Protocol Quality
       
        This specification was reviewed for the IESG by Ned Freed.
