1.4 Relationship to Other Protocols

This protocol describes the XML representation of e-mail message data that is used by the command requests and responses that are described in in [MS-ASCMD]. The protocol that controls the transmission of these commands between client and server is described in [MS-ASHTTP]. The Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) Binary XML (WBXML), as described in [MS-ASWBXML], is used to transmit the XML markup that constitutes the request body and the response body.

All data types in this document conform to the data type definitions that are described in [MS-ASDTYPE]. Common XML schema elements that are used by other classes are defined in [MS-ASAIRS].

For conceptual background information and overviews of the relationships and interactions between this and other protocols, see [MS-OXPROTO].
