1.3 Overview

Bulk data transfer enables clients and servers to move large amounts of information. This protocol enables clients to upload large streams of data to a mailbox server and download large streams of data from a mailbox server.

The upload and export data stream is an opaque format that only needs to be understood by a server implementation. The client only serves as a repository for the opaque data stream so that it can be uploaded to the server at a later time.
