1. Introduction

As an adjunct to the usual, two-way electronic mail service, it is at times useful to employ a one-way text notification service, called radio paging. This memo describes a technique for radio paging using the Internet mail infrastructure. In particular, this memo focuses on the case in which radio pagers are identified via the international telephone network.

The technique described by this memo, mapping telephone numbers to domain names, is derived from the TPC.INT subdomain. Consult RFC 1530, "Principles of Operation for the TPC.INT Subdomain: General Principles and Policy" for overview information.

2. Naming, Addressing, and Routing

A radio pager is identified by a telephone number, e.g.,

+1 415 940 8776

where "+1" indicates the IDDD country code, and the remaining string is a telephone number within that country.

2.1. Addressing

This number is used to construct the address of a radio pager server, which forms the recipient address for the message, e.g., one of:

pager-alpha@6.7.7.8.0.4.9.5.1.4.1.tpc.int pager-numeric@6.7.7.8.0.4.9.5.1.4.1.tpc.int

where the domain-part is constructed by reversing the telephone number, converting each digit to a domain-label, and being placed under "tpc.int." (The telephone number must not include any international access codes.)

In addition, addresses of the form

pager.ATOM@6.7.7.8.0.4.9.5.1.4.1.tpc.int pager-alpha.ATOM@6.7.7.8.0.4.9.5.1.4.1.tpc.int pager-numeric.ATOM@6.7.7.8.0.4.9.5.1.4.1.tpc.int

where "ATOM" is an (optional) RFC 822 atom [1], are reserved for future use. Note that the mailbox syn...
