Queries on Message/rfc822, Compressed-Data.

2003-03-26 03:15:57

I had the following 2 queries. Would appreciate a response on these if

1. Going  through the S/MIME mail archive I find a discussion on the use of
message types like 
    message/rfc822, message/partial etc. that could be used to wrap a
protected message (MIME 
    content + RFC822 Headers). Also as per MOM of the 54th IETF meeting it
seems that 
    message/rfc822 message type has been finalized for this purpose.

    My question is how should one distinguish such a message ( A protected
message wrapped 
    in message/rfc822) from a forwarded message which also has a message
type of 
    message/rfc822 and can also contain a non protected message? Is an
example message of 
    type message/rfc822 containing a protected message available for

2. The latest draft 'S/MIME Version 3.1 Message Specification'
    mentions a new S/MIME type "compressed-data". However for this new
S/MIME type no 
    corresponding EIT has been defined in the S/MIME TRANSPORT draft. Where
would one be 
    able to find the corresponding EIT for the same?
