May be more links to wikipedia articles like this ones. Info here is good, but I like to read more. Its there, but I do not know how is named...

MSA nomenclature issue[edit]

The text "uses the Submission Protocol (a profile of the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP), see RFC 6409)" is confusing, given that RFC 6409 (Message Submission for Mail) contains neither the term profile nor the term Submission Protocol. For that matter, RFC 5321 (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) also does not contain profile and does not use Submission Protocol as a proper noun. Shmuel (Seymour J.)

Protocol version numbers?[edit]

A recent edit by User:Martinkunev changed IMAP4 to IMAP, while leaving POP3 as is. Both protocols are normally referred to with version numbers, and the full title of RFC 3501 is INTERNET MESSAGE ACCESS PROTOCOL - VERSION 4rev1. Is there a wiki style convention requiring dropping the version number? Is there any reason that I shouldn't revert the change? Shmuel (Seymour J.) Metz Username:Chatul (talk) 20:04, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

I made the change because in my experience POP3 is always mentioned with the version number while IMAP is usually just IMAP. So I thought it would be better to use the popular naming conventions for the two protocols. I am not aware if there's an official policy about such issue. I just thought it would be clearer that way but I'm okay if my change is reverted. Martinkunev (talk) 21:46, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

founder[edit]

hey guys , don't we have to mention the founder of email(VA SIVA AYYADURAI) ? i would be a honor to speak about him ? please improve this article.... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 117.216.42.89 (talk) 05:28, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

Ayyadurai did not found anything. Per Shiva Ayyadurai - The Washington Post also followed up with a correction on its report of the Smithsonian acquisition:

A previous version of this article incorrectly referred to V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai as the inventor of electronic messaging. This version has been corrected. The previous, online version of this story also incorrectly cited Ayyadurai’s invention as containing, “The lines of code that produced the first ‘bcc,’ ‘cc,’ ‘to’ and ‘from’ fields.” These features were outlined in earlier documentation separate from Ayyadurai’s work. The original headline also erroneously implied that Ayyadurai had been “honored by [the] Smithsonian” as the “inventor of email.” Dr. Ayyadurai was not honored for inventing electronic messaging. The Smithsonian National Museum of American History incorporated the paperwork documenting the creation of his program into their collection. A previous version also incorrectly stated that had Ayyadurai “pursued a patent, it could have significantly stunted the technology’s growth even as it had the potential to make him incredibly wealthy.” At the time, patents were not awarded for the creation of software.
