handoff strategy. The Network Access Co-ordination Protocol (NACP) is
proposed as an interaction mechanism between the NAA and the mobile

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
