Technical Summary One of the missing features in the existing Internet mail and messaging standards is a facility for server-to-server and server-to- client event notifications related to message store events. As the scope of Internet mail expands to support more diverse media (such as voice mail), devices (such as cell phones) and to provide rich interactions with other services (such as web portals and legal compliance systems), the need for an interoperable notification system increases. This document attempts to enumerate the types of events which interest real-world consumers of such a system. Working Group Summary WG had consensus to publish this document. Document Quality Several vendors plan to implement this specification. The SecDir review resulted in some document improvements in -06. Personnel Eric Burger is the document shepherd. Lisa Dusseault reviewed the document for the IESG.
