Abstract

� � This memo describes a content negotiation mechanism for facsimile,

� � voice and other messaging services that use Internet email.

� � Services such as facsimile and voice messaging need to cope with new

� � message content formats, yet need to ensure that the content of any

� � given message is renderable by the receiving agent.� The mechanism

� � described here aims to meet these needs in a fashion that is fully

� � compatible with the current behaviour and expectations of Internet

� � email.
