Re: MSGTRK pre-drafts
The two choices on the table are:
1) Provide a separate protocol (the Message Tracking Query Protocol, or
MTQP) that lets you query a message's tracking status.
2) As part of the MTRK SMTP extension, add a verb that lets you query a
message's tracking status. It would be similar in a way to HELP, NOOP,
EXPN and VRFY in that it's not used in the sending of mail messages.
The original proposal was to do the second one. At Adelaide it was
proposed that we do the first one. The support for a separate protocol
was overwhelming among the people who were there.
