Re: SMTP Service Extension for Priority

2001-06-25 12:58:20

This proposal appears to be directly competitive with Deliver-By (and, by
derivation, the Timely Confirmation proposal.)

they're orthogonal, by intention.  From RFC 2852:

   This extension should *not* be viewed as a vehicle for requesting
   "priority" processing.  A receiving SMTP server may assign whatever
   processing priority it wishes to a message transmitted with a Deliver
   By request.
