Protocol Action: 'Message Disposition Notification' to Draft Standard
The IESG has approved the following document:
- 'Message Disposition Notification '
<draft-vaudreuil-mdnbis-05.txt> as a Draft Standard
This document has been reviewed in the IETF but is not the product of an
IETF Working Group.
The IESG contact person is Ned Freed.
This memo defines a MIME content-type that may be used by a mail user
agent (MUA) or electronic mail gateway to report the disposition of a
message after it has been successfully delivered to a recipient. This
message headers are also defined to permit Message Disposition
Notifications (MDNs) to be requested by the sender of a message. The
purpose is to extend Internet Mail to support functionality often
found in other messaging systems, such as X.400 and the proprietary
"LAN-based" systems, and often referred to as "read receipts,"
"acknowledgements", or "receipt notifications." The intention is to
do this while respecting the privacy concerns that have often been
expressed when such functions have been discussed in the past.
