Final Charter for Working Group

The Message Tracking Working Group will design a diagnostic protocol
a message originator to request information about the submission,
transport, and delivery of a message regardless of its delivery status.

The group will produce two standards track documents: a message
model document and a protocol document. The model will state how
tracking is enabled, identify the entities involved, define how and
message tracking requests are issued and answered, define approaches
inter-domain message tracking, and address security issues. The
submission, transport, and delivery of RFC 822bis messages will be
tracked from the time such messages enter the messaging network up
the time they are discharged (e.g. to an IMAP server, to an end-user's
mailbox, or a proprietary mail system).

The group will design one or more protocols to implement message
tracking as described above.
