After 5 years and 11 public versions, the email-arch document has
finally made its way into the formal IETF standardization process,
starting with a Last Call for comments from the community.
The document is available in several formats from:
The HTML and PDF versions include figures that are markedly easier to
view than the ASCII art in the (official) txt version...
The document is an individual submission. Although many people have
contributed to it, it was not the product of a working group. So the
IESG cannot presume it has support. Hence, the Last Call of an
individual submission carries an extra burden, to assess the amount of
support that the document has from the community. This requires
affirmative postings from the community.
However verbose or terse, positive or negative, it will aid the IESG's
assessment to see postings from you about whether to make "Internet Mail
Architecture" an IETF standard. In particular, note the enclosed
"Please send substantive comments to the ietf(_at_)ietf(_dot_)org mailing
lists by 2009-03-26."
