    Great source for describing the full functionality of classic
    ITU-T T.30 facsimile service - recommended reading.

    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 : Full-mode Fax Profile for Internet Mail: FFPIM
            Author(s) : D. Crocker, G. Klyne
            Filename : draft-ietf-fax-ffpim-03.txt

    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
    fax users.
    The IETF has been notified of intellectual property rights
    claimed in regard to some or all of the specification
    contained in this document. For more information consult

    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
