> Notifications to Proposed Standard
>Date: Mon, 2 Mar 1998 08:44:03 PST
>The IESG has approved the Internet-Draft 'An Extensible Message Format
>for Message Disposition Notifications' <draft-ietf-receipt-mdn-08.txt>
>as a Proposed Standard. This document is the product of the Receipt
>Notifications for Internet Mail Working Group. The IESG contact
>persons are Harald Alvestrand and Keith Moore.
> This memo defines a MIME content-type that may be used by a mail
> user agent (UA) or electronic mail gateway to report the disposition
> of a message after it has been sucessfully delivered to a recipient
> ("receipt report" or "read report").
> Other WGs may also be using this for delivering information about
> automated processing of messages, for instance in the EDI context.
>Working Group Summary
> The working group came to consensus on the document as written;
> it is believed that any kind of on-reading notification involves
> serious tradeoffs, especially with regard to privacy; the WG
> believes that the current document is a reasonable approach.
> The document was reviewed for the IESG by Harald Alvestrand
