Title : Full-mode Fax Profile for Internet Mail: FFPIM
Author(s) : D. Crocker, G. Klyne

Classic facsimile document exchange represents both a set of
technical specifications [T30] and a class of service.
Previous work [RFC2305, RFC2532] has replicated some of that
service class as a profile within Internet mail. The
current specification defines ˘full mode÷ carriage of
facsimile data over the Internet, building upon that
previous work and adding the remaining functionality
necessary for achieving reliability, timeliness and
capability negotiation for Internet mail that is on a par
with classic T.30 facsimile. These additional features are
designed to provide the highest level of interoperability
with the existing and future standards-compliant email
infrastructure and mail user agents, while providing a level
of service that approximates the level currently enjoyed by

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
attached mail follows:
