ICAP, the Internet Content Adaption Protocol, is a protocol aimed
at providing simple object-based content vectoring for HTTP
services.  ICAP is, in essence, a lightweight protocol for
executing a 'remote procedure call' on HTTP messages.  That is, it
allows ICAP clients to pass HTTP messages to ICAP servers for some

        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.
