For most users, e-mail is just another application on their computers. For developers, however, Internet e-mail involves a dizzying array of standards and formats. Programming Internet Email takes all of today's e-mail standards and puts them together in a readable form. David Wood has compiled his knowledge of a broad array of topics to create this fine guide for both developers and the technologically curious. He explains what makes Internet e-mail work and then dives into the Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME), Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (S/MIME), Open Pretty Good Protocol (OpenPGP), and Post Office Protocol 3 (POP3) standards.
