RFC 2060 defines a new character set encoding, as a modification of
UTF-7. However, it does not give a name to this encoding, which means
that different vendor libraries will use different names for it,
causing confusion (or worse, they may call it UTF-7, even though it is

Therefore, I request that a name for the encoding in RFC 2060 is
registered. I propose the following entry in the registry:

Name: RFC_2060-mailbox
MIBenum: <assigned by IANA>
Source: RFC-2060
Alias: csRFC2060mailbox

Please let me know if you need further information.
