A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.

        Title           : SMTP Service Extensions for Transmission of Large and 
Binary MIME Messages
        Author(s)       : G. Vaudreuil
        Filename        : draft-vaudreuil-esmtp-binary3-02.txt
        Pages           : 12
        Date            : 2006-3-10
This memo defines two extensions to the SMTP service.  The first 
extension enables a SMTP client and server to negotiate the use of an 
alternative to the DATA command, called "BDAT", for efficiently 
sending large MIME messages.  The second extension takes advantage of 
the BDAT command to permit the negotiated sending of MIME messages 
that employ the binary transfer encoding. This document is intended to 
obsolete RFC 3030.

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
