Technical Summary The cellular telephone industry has defined a service known as the Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS). This service uses formats and protocols which are similar to, but differ in key ways from those used in Internet mail. This document specifies how to exchange messages between these two services, including mapping information elements as used in MMS X-Mms-* headers as well as delivery and disposition reports, to and from that used in ESMTP and Internet message headers. Working Group Summary The LEMONADE working group came to consensus on the publication of this document. No issues were raised during IETF Last Call. This work was coordinated with 3GPP and 3GPP2 by the author and working group chairs. The document was approved, but the approval appealed by John Klensin. After considering the appeal, the IESG asked the working group to consider the issues raised. This document contains the changes made by the working group post-appeal and after a second IETF Last Call. Protocol Quality This work was reviewed for the IESG by Ted Hardie. Eric Burger and Glenn Parsons are the PROTO shepherds.
