        Title           : SMTP Service Extension for message Media Size 
        Author(s)       : V. Shveidel, A. Erev
        Filename        : draft-shveidel-mediasize-02.txt

This memo defines an extension to the SMTP service whereby an SMTP 
client and server may interact to give the server an opportunity to 
decline to accept a message (perhaps temporarily) based on the 
client's estimate of the general message size and sizes of  media 
parts the message contains. 
[9] lists a number of issues and requirements for the use of 
internet messaging in the context of Unified Messaging and Telephone 
User Interface. This memo elaborates and suggests an implementation 
for chapter 3.2 of [9]. 
This memo extends facilities of 'SMTP Service Extension for Message 
Size Declaration' [3]. As such, the authors of this memo used 
portions of the text in [3] as a basis for this memo.

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
