We in general do not send our Evaluation comments to the datatracker.  We 
normally refer to the Last Call comments logged in the tracker.




IANA NOT OK.  Comments in tracker
IANA Actions - YES

1) A question posted in the tracker and in the IANA Last Call comments.

2) Expert review is depended on a clarification to the question.

Thank you,

Technical Summary

This memo defines two Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) reply
codes, 521 and 556.  The 521 code was originally described in an
Experimental RFC in 1995 and is in wide use, but has not previously
been formally incorporated into SMTP.  The 556 code was created for
RFC-nullMX.  These codes are used to indicate that an Internet host
does not accept incoming mail at all (not just under particular

This is presented for publication as a Proposed Standard, as it adds
to RFC 5321, which is already standards track.

Review and Consensus

This document came out of discussions on both the apps discuss and
mailing lists about (1) moving RFC 1846 to the standards track, and
(2) the
nullMX idea. There was wide-spread agreement on both of those efforts,
including accepting nullMX as an APPS WG document.

The decision to create this document was mostly due to administrative
ease so
that there was only one document updating RFC 5321 instead of two. The
nullMX document was then rewritten to point to this document. (The
document has been through 10 revisions since becoming an APPS WG

There is widespread implementation of both of these return codes.
