   This document presents a checklist that facilitates evaluation of
   MIME capable E-mail User Agents. It is by no means a conformance or
   interoperability (both strictly defined and measurable quantities)
   checklist, but rather an interworking (practical perspective)
   checklist that is aimed at the users and system managers.

Usage and submission

   If you use this checklist against a specific product (regardless of
   whether you're a vendor, implementor or user) you can submit the
   result to , make sure that the subject
   reflects the name and version of the product. This is an automated
   mailhandler, so PLEASE only submit filled-in checklists (in content-
   type text/plain or text/html) to this address. This information will
   be made available (at no cost) for other people to browse through at
   URL: http://www.nic.surfnet.nl/surfnet/projects/surf-ace/mime/

   Although SURFnet will attempt to verify the correctness of each
   submission, all submitted information is made available as is, with
   no guarantees (SURFnet does not take any responsibility for errors in
   the data that is made available, or for any damages resulting from
   usage of that data). Users who want to procure a UA are advised to
   use the data as an orientation, and to perform their own procurement
   tests (possibly using the checklist below as a guideline). Also it is
   noted that vendors and implementors are encouraged to use the results
   from the checklist to improve their products.
