This document gives examples of message bodies formatted using S/MIME.
Specifically, it has examples of Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS)
objects, S/MIME messages (including the MIME formatting), and Enhanced
Security Services for S/MIME (ESS). It includes examples of most or all
common CMS and ESS formats; in addition, it gives examples that show
common pitfalls in implementing CMS. The purpose of this document is to
help increase interoperability for S/MIME and other protocols that rely
on CMS.

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
