Check out http://www.darkface.pp.se/rfc/

For a list of the RFC's (Request for comment) documents for implementation
and clarifications.  At one time I found the sendmail protocol and it's

MAIL, MIME and SMTP are good keywords.

Using "man sendmail | grep RFC yeald the following documents:
   RFC1341, 1344, 1123, 819, 821, 1822

RFC1341 missing
