I've been working on an email architecture document, prompted by the increased diversity of folk who are trying to enhance the service, to mitigate minor problems like spam. I think the document has reached a stable point, in its attempt to describe the current service. I'd like to get feedback from the ops community.

The latest version has substantial changes, but I think they are refinements from the previous version and reflect feedback I've received. Of course, any additional comments are more than welcome, and I have no doubt there can be debate about lots of the details.
But the goal is to get this published sooner, rather than later, so I am hoping this is the last major revision.

I've submitted the doc to the i-d folks. In the interim, you can access it at:

I've rename MHS to MTA (mail transport agent) which is the proper technical term. I guess there's a reason why you didn't use MTA?
