Title : Goals for Internet Voice Mail

This document describes the goals for Internet Voice Mail (IVM) and
establishes a baseline of desired functionality against which
proposed MIME profiles for Internet Voice Messaging can be judged.
IVM is an extension of VPIM version 2 [VPIM2] designed to support
interoperability with desktop clients. Other goals for this version
of VPIM include expanded interoperability with unified messaging
systems, conformance to Internet standards, and backward
compatibility with voice messaging systems currently running in a
VPIM enabled environment. This document does not include goals that
were met fully by VPIM version 2 [VPIM2].

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
