This part of ISO/IEC ISP 12062 covers access to a message store (MS) in an Interpersonal Messaging (IPM) environment using the P7 MS Access Protocol (see also figure 1). These specifications form part of the Interpersonal Messaging application functions, as defined in the parts of ISO/IEC ISP 12062, and are based on the Common Messaging content type-independent specifications in ISO/IEC ISP 10611.
The type of MS access specified in this part of ISO/IEC ISP 12062 allows an IPM user agent (UA) to interact with an MS in a full and flexible manner without having to retrieve complete messages. Minimal attribute support for MS access in an IPM environment can be specified by claiming conformance to profile AMH13 with an additional claim of support of IPM MS attributes (see subclause A.3.1 of ISO/IEC ISP 10611-5). Annex A of this part of ISO/IEC ISP 12062 may be used in such a case.
1.2 Position within the taxonomy
This part of ISO/IEC ISP 12062 is the fifth part of a multipart ISP identified in ISO/IEC TR 10000-2 as AMH2, Message Handling S ystems - Interpersonal Messaging.
This part of ISO/IEC ISP 12062 specifies the following profile:
AMH24 - IPM Requirements for Enhanced MS Access (P7)
The AMH24 profile may be combined with any T-Profiles (see ISO/IEC TR 10000) specifying the OSI connection-mode Transport service.
The model used is one of access to an IPM message store (MS) by an IPM MS-user - specifically, the intercommunication between an IPM MS and an IPM MS-user (i.e. an IPM user agent) using the P7 protocol, as shown in figure 1.
The AMH24 profile covers all aspects of the MS Abstract Service, as defined in the 1990/1992 publication of ISO/IEC 10021-5, when realized using the P7 protocol in an IPM environment. (The AMH26 profile covers the MS 94 Abstract Service).
The OSI upper layer services and protocols to support the Message Ha ndling Systems functions covered by the AMH24 profile are specified in subclause 1.3 of ISO/IEC ISP 10611-5.
