Abstract

   Instant Messaging (IM) refers to the transfer of messages between    users in real-time.  This document provides a mechanism whereby    endpoints can request Instant Message Disposition Notifications    (IMDN), including delivery, processing, and display notifications,    for page-mode instant messages.

   The Common Presence and Instant Messaging (CPIM) data format    specified in RFC 3862 is extended with new header fields that enable    endpoints to request IMDNs.  A new message format is also defined to    convey IMDNs.

   This document also describes how SIP entities behave using this    extension.
