6.1.3 RFC 1869 SMTP Service Extensions Printer Friendly   Email This FAQ   Discuss
The Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) [1] has provided a stable, effective basis for the relay function of message transfer agents. Although a decade old, SMTP has proven remarkably resilient. Nevertheless, the need for a number of protocol extensions has become evident. Rather than describing these extensions as separate and haphazard entities, this document enhances SMTP in a straightforward fashion that provides a framework in which all future extensions can be built in a single consistent way.
