Technical Summary
 
The VPIM directory schema provides essential additional attributes
to recreate the voice mail user experience using standardized
directories.  This user experience provides, at the time of
addressing, basic assurances that the message will be delivered
as intended.

The VPIM routing document describes two mechanisms by which a
sending VPIM system may determine the destination mailbox given a
telephone number.  Both mechanisms build upon ENUM.  One mechanism
utilizes an LDAP query to determine recipient capabilities and
retrieve address confirmation information such as a spoken or text
name.
 
Working Group Summary
