Abstract

This document proposes a mechanism for finding a URI associated with a solicitation class keyword, which is defined in RFC 3865, the No Soliciting SMTP Service Extension. Solicitation class keywords are simple labels consisting of a domain name that has been reversed, such as "org.example.adv". These solicitation class keywords are inserted in selected header fields or used in the ESMTP service extension, including a new "No-Solicit:" header, which can contain one or more solicitation class keywords inserted by the sender.

Abstract

   This document proposes a mechanism for finding a URI associated with
   a solicitation class keyword, which is defined in RFC 3865, the No
   Soliciting SMTP Service Extension.  Solicitation class keywords are
   simple labels consisting of a domain name that has been reversed,
   such as "org.example.adv".  These solicitation class keywords are
   inserted in selected header fields or used in the ESMTP service
   extension, including a new "No-Solicit:" header, which can contain
   one or more solicitation class keywords inserted by the sender.

   This document specifies an application based on the Dynamic
   Delegation Discovery System (DDDS) described in RFC 3401 and related
   documents.  An algorithm is specified to associate a solicitation
   class keyword with a URI which contains further information about the
   meaning and usage of that solicitation class keyword.  For example,
   the registrant of the "example.org" domain could use this mechanism
   to create a URI which contains detailed information about the
   "org.example.adv" solicitation class keyword.
