The cellular telephone industry has defined a service known as the Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS). This service uses formats and protocols which are similar to, but differ in key ways from those used in Internet mail. This document specifies how to exchange messages between these two services, including mapping information elements as used in MMS X-MMS-* headers to and from that used in ESMTP and Internet message headers.
