This memo defines an extension to SMTP which provides a mechanism for requesting immediate message delivery over SMTP instead of normal store-and-forward delivery. It also provides a mechanism for querying the SMTP server if immediate delivery was successful, is still in progress, or was simply queued as a normal store-and-forward message.
