Description of Working Group

RFC 1327 describes mappings to enable interworking between e-mail systems using RFC 822 and e-mail systems using CCITT X.400(88). RFC 1327 is a Proposed Standard and up for review. A specially formed review team has proposed to integrate RFC 1494, RFC 1495, outcome of the NOTARY group (support for delivery notifications in SMTP) and align it with X.400(92). The name of the specification is MIXER which stands for Mime Internet X.400 Enhanced Relay. The working group will review the MIXER draft, refine it as needed and move the document to Proposed Standard.

The goal is to concentrate the work in a single document.
