1.3 Overview

An E-mail object represents a single e-mail message. The properties that are specific to an E-mail object facilitate retaining information about the e-mail message's sender, recipients (1), subject, message content, and all the options associated with this e-mail that are set by the sender or recipient (1). An E-mail object is stored in a Folder object. This protocol also specifies how an E-mail object is used to represent a report message, which is a special type of message that is generated to report the status of a sent message, either at the sender's request or at the request of the system administrator.
