Title : Critical Content of Internet Mail

This document describes a mechanism for identifying the body parts
that the sender deems critical in a multi-part Internet mail
By knowing what parts of a message the sender deems critical, a MTA
or UA can intelligently handle multi-part messages. Applications of
critical content include, but are not limited to, the following
applications. Critical content can help a smart gateway decide what
parts to forward. It can indicate how hard a gateway should try to
deliver a body part. It can help an MTA to select body parts to
silently delete when a system of lesser capability receives a
message. In addition, critical content can help indicate the
notification strategy of the receiving system.

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
