Analytical anti-spam tools are designed to prevent unsolicited 
commercial email from being delivered to the user(s) that the tool 
is protecting by means of analyzing the message's content.  Such 
tools are designed to learn the different tokens and patterns that 
comprise both innocent and guilty messages to effectively conclude 
whether a message is considered to be spam.

A method of inoculation provides the ability for the end-user to 
benefit by pre-seeding the filtering tool with contextual 
information specific to the content to which the inoculation is 
targeted for.

This memo describes the message format used to transmit inoculations

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.
