Persons planning on either implementing or using this protocol are STRONGLY URGED to get in touch with the author before embarking on such a project. Copyright Copyright (C) The Internet Society 1998. All Rights Reserved. This document describes a mail filtering language for filtering messages at time of final delivery. It is designed to be independent of protocol, and implementable on either a mail client or mail server. It is meant to be extensible, simple, and independent of access protocol, mail architecture, and operating system. It is suitable for running on a mail server where users may not be allowed to execute arbitrary programs, such as on black box IMAP servers, as it has no variables, loops, or ability to shell out to external programs
