Title : Internet Printing Protocol (IPP): The 'mailto:'
Delivery Method for Event Notifications
Author(s) : R. Herriot, H. Holst, T. Hastings, C. Manros
Filename : draft-ietf-ipp-notify-mailto-03.txt

The notification extension document [ipp-ntfy] defines operations that a
client can perform in order to create Subscription Objects in a Printer
and carry out other operations on them. The Subscription Object
specifies that when one of the specified Events occurs, the Printer
sends an asynchronous Event Notification to the specified Notification
Recipient via the specified Delivery Method (i.e., protocol).
The notification extension document [ipp-ntfy] specifies that each
Delivery Method is defined in another document. This document is one
such document, and it specifies the 'mailto' delivery method.
For this Delivery Method, when an Event occurs, the Printer immediately
sends an Event Notification via an email message to the Notification
Recipient specified in the Subscription Object. The message body of the
email consists of Human Consumable text that is not intended to be
parsed by a machine.

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
