solution has been developed by consensus in the 3GPP and OMA groups,
based on MIME, HTTP methods and WAP PUSH, which has been deployed by
This document presents a taxonomy of messaging architecture
components and models, providing a comparison of their feature sets.
It also identifies the commonalities of these mobile messaging
solutions and abstracts from these a set of mobile messaging
The information is provided to inform and encourage future discussion

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

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
