 A Revised Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts 
 directories. This draft is a work item of the Integrated Directory 
 Services Working Group of the IETF.                                       

       Title     : Best Current Practice for the 
                   Internet White Pages Service

The Internet is used for information exchange and communication between its
users. It can only be effective as such if users are able to find each 
other's addresses. Therefore the Internet benefits from an adequate White 
Pages Service, i.e. a directory service offering (Internet) address 
information related to people and organizations.

Send a message to:  mailserv@ds.internic.net. In the body type: 
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-ids-ds-bcp-01.txt".
NOTE: The mail server at ds.internic.net 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 Internet-Draft.
