Technical Summary This defines a new email header field, Archived-At:, to provide a direct link to the archived form of an individual email message. It can be added by mailing lists or news servers associated with an online archive. Working Group Summary This is the product of an individual submitter. Protocol Quality This was discussed on the message header field review mailing list. During development of this specification, a decision was made to allow folding whitespace in the middle of the URL, but to otherwise use a simpler and more restrictive syntax than RFC 2369 which covers a related topic. This specification was reviewed for the IESG by Chris Newman. It has been used by the W3C and Gmane.
