Overview http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-eai- mailinglist-00.txthttp://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-eai- mailinglist-00.txt –Expanding from Scenarios Doc –Mailing-List Header Fields Mailing-lists should not introduce additional protocol requirements for EAI –Operational policies of managing mailing-lists (should always obtain alt-address or atomic information of subscriber) –Highlights issue for obtaining alt-address / atomic info
Scenarios Pure Case (only members involved) –Member Mailing-List –Mailing-List Member Scenario 2.1 -- Two i18nmail users Scenario 2.4 -- One i18nmail user sends to one ASCII user Mixed Case (non-members involved) –Non-Member Mailing-List –Non-Member cc-ed –Member replying to list and cc-ing Non-Member Scenario 2.2 -- Three i18nmail users Scenario 2.5 -- An i18mail user sends to one ascii user and one i18nmail user
Mailing List Header Fields List-Id: List Header Mailing List List-Help: (List Instructions) List-Unsubscribe: List-Subscribe: List-Post: List-Owner: (Contact Person for Help) List-Archive: Generally follows EAIHeaders and IRI documents May wish to extend mailto IRI to allow for presentation of alt-address / atomic info?
Issues for Further Discussion Obtaining Downgrade Information –EAI-aware EAI-aware mailing-list, alt-address or atomic information is not required –Downgrade maybe called for when exploding to members –Reject incoming mail if alt-address / atomic info not provided? –Mechanism, such as an additional SMTP command, for the receiving MTA (in this case the mailing-list) to request for alt- address or atomic information from sender? –May be useful in other scenarios (especially those concerning multiple recipients) Downgrading Considerations for mailto URLs –Including Alt-Address / Atomic info in mailto URLs? Operational policy of requiring Alt-Address / Atomic info –Hard requirement / suggestion?
