Technical Summary The IETF makes heavy use of email lists to conduct its work. This often involves accessing the archived history of those email lists. Participants would like to have the ability to browse and search those archives using standard IMAP clients. This memo captures the requirements for providing a service that would allow such browsing and searching, and it is intended as input to a later activity for the design and development of such a service. Working Group Summary This has been discussed on the ietf list and with various e-mail experts. There has been no significant disagreement. Document Quality It is expected that review in the IETF has been sufficient, and the topic seems straightforward, non-controversial. Personnel There is no Document Shepherd. The responsible Area Director is Jari Arkko. RFC Editor Note In the acknowledgments section, please change "Martin Durst" to "Martin Duerst".
