A Military Message Handling System (MMHS) processes formal messages
ensuring release, distribution, security, and timely delivery across
national and international strategic and tactical networks.  The MMHS
Elements of Service are defined as a set of extensions to the ITU-T
X.400 (1992) international standards and are specified in STANAG 4406
Edition 2 and ACP 123.  This document specifies message header fields
and associated processing for RFC 5322 (Internet Message Format) to 
provide a comparable messaging service.  In addition, this document 
provides for a STANAG 4406 / Internet Email Gateway that supports 
message conversion.  This document is not an Internet Standards Track 
specification; it is published for informational purposes.
