Original Text

Corrected Text

RFC 5751 contains several S/MIME sample messages, prefixed with the text "A 
sample message would be".  These samples aren't actually valid S/MIME messages 
but merely contain 141 bytes of random garbage.  In other words the S/MIME 
"sample messages" aren't actually sample messages.

This erratum is currently posted as "Reported". If necessary, please
use "Reply All" to discuss whether it should be verified or
rejected. When a decision is reached, the verifying party (IESG)
can log in to change the status and edit the report, if necessary.
