 A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts 

       Title     : Internet Email Subaddressing

It is often useful for a single user to have multiple email addresses which
can be used to assist categorizing incoming email.  One way of doing this 
is to divide the local-part of an email address into a primary address and 
a subaddress.  The primary address is used to route the message within the 
specified domain and the subaddress is used to route the message according 
to a particular user's wishes.                       

This specification formalizes the de-facto standard for subaddressing 
in use today and includes advice and requirements for final delivery 
agents, MUAs and mail list servers which wish to support subaddressing.

Internet-Drafts are also available by mail.     
Send a message to:  mailserv(_at_)ds(_dot_)internic(_dot_)net(_dot_) In the 
body type: 
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-newman-email-subaddr-00.txt".
NOTE: The mail server at can return the document in
      MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
      feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
      command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
      a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
      exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
      "multipart" MIME messages (i.e., documents which have been split
      up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
      how to manipulate these messages.

Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader 
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version
of the Internet-Draft.
