Title : SIP Instant Message Sessions
Author(s) : B. Campbell, J. Rosenberg
Filename : draft-ietf-simple-im-session-00.txt

"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
