Title : IPv6 SMTP operational requirements
Author(s) : M. Nakamura, J. Hagino
Filename : draft-ietf-ngtrans-ipv6-smtp-requirement-01.txt
Pages : 6
Date : 05-Jul-01
The memo lists operational requirements for IPv6 SMTP, and IPv6-capable
MX DNS records. As we deploy IPv6 SMTP servers, it became apparent that
we need certain configuration in IPv6-capable MX DNS record, for stable

IPv6 SMTP, and operational requirements for stable IPv4/v6 SMTP

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in

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
