Notification and filtering mechanisms can make email more enjoyable on
mobile and other constrained devices (such as those with limited
screen sizes, memory, data transfer rates, etc.).  Notifications make
the client aware of significant events (such as the arrival of new
mail) so it can react (such as by fetching interesting mail
immediately).  Filtering reduces the visible mail to a set of messages
that meet some criteria for "interesting".  This functionality is
included in the goals of the Lemonade (Enhancements to Internet email
to Support Diverse Service Environments) Working Group.

This document also discusses the use of server-to-server
notifications, and how server to server notifications fit into an
architecture that provides server to client notifications.  This 
memo provides information for the Internet community.

This document is a product of the Enhancements to Internet email to support diverse service environments Working Group of the IETF.
