This document describes a method for identifying the originating
calling party in the headers of a stored voice mail message. Two new
header fields are defined for this purpose: Caller ID and Called Name.
Caller ID is used to store sufficient information for the recipient to
callback, or reply to, the sender of the message. Called-name provides
the name of the person sending the message.

RFC Editor note
Please add this sentence to the end of paragraph two in Section 3.2 (after
"Though it is desirable that an international number not be truncated to 10
digits if it contains more, it is recognized that this will happen due to
limitations of various systems."):
"Implementors of this specification should be aware that some phone systems
are known to truncate international numbers, even though it is recognized
that this is undesirable behavior."
