1) thats a draft, not an RFC.
2) I believe that isn't the same document, either.
Go and look at the RFC index. It usually takes a couple of seconds to
find the right document.
The only index I know if is http://ds.internic.net/ds/rfc-index.html
If you know of another, maybe one that is searchable, I'd like to
hear about it. Sifting through over 2000 RFCs for a keyphrase like
"well-known email addresses" without a search tool takes more than
a few seconds.
Of course, in this particular case, that RFC is on the first page
and has "mail" in the title:
D. Crocker, "MAILBOX NAMES FOR COMMON SERVICES, ROLES AND FUNCTIONS", 05/06/1997. (Pages=6)
