The IESG has received a request from an individual submitter to consider the following document: - 'Simple Mail Transfer Protocol extension for Message Transfer Priorities' <draft-melnikov-smtp-priority-13.txt> as Proposed Standard A Last Call was made previously for this document, and the Last Call comments resulted in a substantial rewrite, separating out some work into a separate draft (draft-melnikov-smtp-priority-tunneling-00), which will be send out for a separate Last Call soon. The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits final comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the email@example.com mailing lists by 2012-05-28. Exceptionally, comments may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org instead. In either case, please retain the beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting. Abstract This memo defines an extension to the SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) service whereby messages are sent with a priority to enable receivers to take this into account for onward processing, with the general goal of processing and/or transferring higher priority messages first. Note that there is a down-reference in this document: There is a normative reference to RFC 2033 (LMTP), which is Informational. The file can be obtained via http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-melnikov-smtp-priority/ IESG discussion can be tracked via http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-melnikov-smtp-priority/ballot/ No IPR declarations have been submitted directly on this I-D.
