This document is a self-contained specification of the basic protocol for the Internet electronic mail transport, consolidating and updating:
- the original SMTP specification of RFC 821 [RFC-821],
- domain name system requirements and implications for mail transport from RFC 1035 [RFC-DNS] and RFC 974 [RFC-974],

NOTE:	The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
