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.
