This document defines a new Content-Disposition header field value "encapsulated" to be used with "message/rfc822" and "message/global" media types. Content-Disposition "encapsulated" signals that enclosed message should be presented inline, instead of being presented as a forwarded message. One use case for this is for S/ MIME header protection.
