Technical Summary
  This document describes OPES SMTP use cases and deployment scenarios
   in preparation for SMTP adaptation with OPES.  In SMTP the OPES processor 
   may be any agent participating in SMTP exchanges, including a Mail Submission
   Agent (MSA), a Mail Transfer Agent (MTA), a Mail Delivery Agent (MDA), and a 
   Mail User Agent (MUA).  This document focuses on use cases in which the OPES
   processor is a mail transfer agent (MTA).
Working Group Summary
The working group came to consensus on these use cases and on the scope
of the document.
Protocol Quality
This document describes motivating use cases for protocol work, rather than a
protocol.  The document was reviewed for the IESG by Ted Hardie.
