This document describes the registration of the MIME sub-type

multipart/voice-message for use with the Voice Profile for Internet

Mail (VPIM). A full description of usage can be found in the VPIM v2

specification [VPIM2]. This document revises an earlier sub-type

registration in RFC 1911 [VPIM1].

2. VPIM Scope

The VPIM specification defines a restricted profile of the Internet

The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",

"SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this

document are to be interpreted as described in [REQ].
