This memo defines an extension to the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol
(SMTP) service that allows an SMTP client to specify the
responsible submitter of an e-mail message.  The responsible
submitter is the e-mail address of the entity most recently
responsible for introducing a message into the transport stream.
This extension helps receiving e-mail servers efficiently determine
whether the SMTP client is authorized to transmit mail on behalf of
the responsible submitter's domain.  This memo defines an Experimental Protocol for the Internet community.

EXPERIMENTAL: This memo defines an Experimental Protocol for the Internet
