   The Message Disposition Notification (MDN) facility defined in RFC
   2298 provides a means by which a message can request that message
   processing by the recipient be acknowledged as well as a format to be
   used for such acknowledgements.  However, it doesn't describe how
   multiple Mail User Agents (MUAs) should handle the generation of MDNs
   in an Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP4) environment.

   This document describes how to handle MDNs in such an environment and
   provides guidelines for implementers of IMAP4 that want to add MDN
   support to their products.
