+ The following disposition-types are defined:
+ @li Displayed The message has been displayed by the UA to someone
+ reading the recipient's mailbox. There is no guarantee that the
+ content has been read or understood.
+ @li Dispatched The message has been sent somewhere in some manner
+ (e.g., printed, faxed, forwarded) without necessarily having been previously
+ displayed to the user. The user may or may not see the message later.
+ @li Processed The message has been processed in some manner (i.e., by
+ some sort of rules or server) without being displayed to the user. The user
+ may or may not see the message later, or there may not even be a human user
+ associated with the mailbox.
+ @li Deleted The message has been deleted. The recipient may or may not
+ have seen the message. The recipient might "undelete" the message at a
+ later time and read the message.
+ @li Denied The recipient does not wish the sender to be informed of the
+ message's disposition. A UA may also siliently ignore message disposition
+ requests in this situation.
+ @li Failed A failure occurred that prevented the proper generation
+ of an MDN. More information about the cause of the failure may be contained
+ in a Failure field. The "failed" disposition type is not to be used for
+ the situation in which there is is some problem in processing the message
+ other than interpreting the request for an MDN. The "processed" or other
+ disposition type with appropriate disposition modifiers is to be used in
+ such situations.
+ IOW:
+ @p Displayed when - well -displayed
+ @p Dispatched when forwarding unseen ( == new )
+ @p Processed (maybe) when piping unseen, but probably never used
+ @p Deleted when deleting unseen
+ @p Denied on user command
+ @p Failed on Disposition-Notification-Options containing
+ unknown required options. ( == @em any required options )
+ @p Failed needs a description in the @p special parameter.

+ The following disposition modifiers are defined:
+ @li Error An error of some sort occurred that prevented
+ successful processing of the message. Further information is contained
+ in an Error field.
+ @li Warning The message was successfully processed but some
+ sort of exceptional condition occurred. Further information is contained
+ in a Warning field.
+ @li Superseded The message has been automatically rendered obsolete
+ by another message received. The recipient may still access and read the
+ message later.
+ @li Expired The message has reached its expiration date and has
+ been automatically removed from the recipient's mailbox.
+ @li MailboxTerminated The recipient's mailbox has been terminated and all
+ message in it automatically removed.

+ a result of an automatic action, rather than an explicit instruction by the
