2822 implementation report request

2008-06-02 06:29:27

The IETF will shortly be considering elevating the revised mail format specification RFC 2822, to the second-level standards status of DRAFT.

A requirement for this is to produce information about implementations of the protocol specification. It is therefore essential that we assemble a credible collection of information about actual development and interoperability testing -- and deployment is a form of testing -- for RFC 2822.

Because mail is a rich and widely-deployed protocol, the goal of this
query is to ask for enough information to be useful, but not to place
undue burden on responders by asking them to do a massive checklist.

It is assumed that most implementations of RFC 2822 have implemented all
of its required (MUST) features and probably a fair number of its
optional (SHOULD or MAY) features.

This survey does NOT cover any specifications outside of the RFC2822
document itself.  No enhancements, options, or the like.

Please take some time to complete the following questionnaire and send
me a private note with your responses.  I will assemble them into a
public report.

Please respond by June 10 2008.
