1893    Vaudreuil    Jan 96   Enhanced Mail System Status Codes

There currently is not a standard mechanism for the reporting of mail
system errors except for the limited set offered by SMTP and the system
specific text descriptions sent in mail messages.  There is a pressing
need for a rich machine readable status code for use in delivery status
notifications [DSN].  This document proposes a new set of status codes
for this purpose.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]

1892    Vaudreuil    Jan 96   The Multipart/Report Content Type

                              Administrative Messages

The Multipart/Report MIME content-type is a general "family" or
"container" type for electronic mail reports of any kind. Although this
memo defines only the use of the Multipart/Report content-type with
respect to delivery status reports, mail processing programs will
benefit if a single content-type is used to for all kinds of reports.
