Final Charter for Working Group

MIME, (Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions) is currently a
Draft Standard. MIME redefines the format of message bodies to
allow multi-part textual and non-textual message bodies to be
represented and exchanged without loss of information. With the
introduction of MIME as a Draft Standard it is now possible to
define mappings between RFC 822 content-types and X.400 body parts.
The MIME-MHS Interworking Working Group is chartered to develop
these mappings, providing an emphasis on both interworking between
Internet and MHS mail environments and also on tunneling through
these environments. These mappings will be made in the context of an
RFC 1148bis environment.
