Core Protocols and Standards
- Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) : In the Internet Protocol Suite, SMTP is the basic method for transferring the "envelopes" of electronic mail among servers performing the electronic "post office" function, not the user mailbox function. (RFC-5321)
- Extended SMTP (ESMTP) : Extensions of the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol
- SMTP example sessions : Typical email sessions using the SMTP protocol.
- Post Office Protocol (POP) : A client-server messaging protocol for email which requires messages to be downloaded to a client's computer, phone or tablet for reading. (RFC-1939)
- Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) : A client-server messaging protocol for Email which allows messages to be stored indefinitely on the server. (RFC-3501)

- Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME) : MIME extends the format of Internet mail to allow non-US-ASCII textual messages, non-textual messages, multipart message bodies, and non-US-ASCII information in message headers. (RFC-2045..2049)
- Sender Policy Framework (SPF) : Email authentication method that verifies the domain name in the envelope return address against the sender's IP address.
- Sender ID : Email authentication method that verifies the domain name in a "purported" address with the sender's IP address.
- DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) : Email authentication method that uses a digital signature to verify the content of a message.
- Forward-confirmed reverse DNS (FCrDNS) : Email authentication method that verifies a domain name found by a reverse DNS query on the transmitter's IP address.
- Reverse MX (RMX) : Email authentication method that became a basis of SPF and Sender ID.
- Designated Mailers Protocol (DMP) : Email authentication method that became a basis of SPF and Sender ID.
- Certified Server Validation (CSV) : Email authentication method that verifies the hostname of an SMTP transmitter against that transmitter's IP address. )
