1.  Introduction

   JMAP ([RFC8620] - JSON Meta Application Protocol) is a generic
   protocol for synchronising data, such as mail, calendars or contacts,
   between a client and a server.  It is optimised for mobile and web
   environments, and provides a consistent interface to different data
   types.

   JMAP for Mail ([RFC8621] - The JSON Meta Application Protocol (JMAP)
   for Mail) specifies a data model for synchronising email data with a
   server using JMAP.  Clients can use this to efficiently search,
   access, organise, and send messages.

   Message Disposition Notifications (MDNs) are defined in [RFC8098] and
   are used as "read receipts", "acknowledgements", or "receipt
   notifications".

   A client can have to deal with MDNs in different ways:

   1.  When receiving an email message, an MDN can be sent to the
       sender.  This specification defines an MDN/send method to cover
       this case.

   2.  When sending an email message, an MDN can be requested.  This
       must be done with the help of a header, and is already specified
       by [RFC8098] and can already be handled by [RFC8621] this way.

   3.  When receiving an MDN, the MDN could be related to an existing
       sent message.  This is already covered by [RFC8621] in the
       EmailSubmission object.  A client might want to display detailed
       information about a received MDN.  This specification defines an
       MDN/parse method to cover this case.
