This memo makes recommendations for software that automatically responds
to incoming electronic mail messages, including 'out of the office'
response generators, mail filtering software, email-based information
services, and other automatic responders.  The purpose of these
recommendations is to discourage undesirable behavior which is caused or
aggravated by such software, to encourage uniform behavior (where
appropriate) among automatic mail responders, and to clear up some
sources of confusion among implementors of automatic email responders.

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
