RE: EDI and MDN
These were felt to be trading partner specific at this time and because of
that "may" was used in place of must. The same is true of the "processed"
status. It is a trading partner issues at this time.... the definition
being left up to the trading partners...... Regards, Rik

Subject: EDI and MDN
I. For EDI exchanges, what does it mean when a sender station receives
an MDN with a disposition-type field="processed".
1. the recipient UA has delivered the EDI interchange to a translator to
be processed or
2. the translator has processed successfuly the EDI interchange
II. In the case of forwarding the EDI message, I think that that page 3
of draft [fajman 97] is not enough specific
" however, if a message is forwarded, a "dispatched" MDN may been issued
for the recipient doing the forwarding and the recipient of the
forwarded message may also cause an MDN to be generated"
Don't you think, that for EDI, we need to replace "may" by "must"?
