        Title           : Critical Content of Internet Mail
        Author(s)       : E. Burger, E. Candell
        Filename        : draft-ietf-vpim-cc-02.txt

This document describes a mechanism for identifying the body parts
that the sender deems critical in a multi-part Internet mail
By knowing what parts of a message the sender deems critical, a MTA
or UA can intelligently handle multi-part messages when gatewaying
(MTA) or presenting (UA) to systems of lesser capability. Critical
content can help a smart gateway decide what parts to forward.  It
can indicate how hard a gateway should try to deliver a body part.
It can help an MTA to select body parts to silently delete when a
system of lesser capability receives a message.  In addition,
critical content can help indicate the notification strategy of the
receiving system.

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
