On August 5, 2014, US Time, global email service provider Google announced on its official blog that it will support IETF RFC6531 and other international technical standards on multilingual email. RFC6531 is formulated under the leadership of China Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC).

According to Google, the IETF released the technical standard on multilingual email in 2012, but the implementation of the standard requires the support and adoption of email service providers worldwide. “The technology is there like a mountain. There has to be a first person to climb this mountain, and Google is willing to be that one,” said a technical staff of Google.

From August 5, 2014, US Time, GMAIL will be able to receive and send emails from and to email addresses in multiple languages. In the near future, Google will provide multilingual email box registration service. Google official blog:http:// http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2014/08/a-first-step-toward-more-global-email.html

So far, the domestic email service provider COREMAIL has taken the lead in realizing multilingual email technology in its products, and the top three mainstream open source email software in the world also support multilingual email technology. According to experts in the industry, more email service providers are expected to provide multilingual email service.

Yao Jiankang, leading author of IETF RFC6531 and senior engineer of CNNIC, performed a communication test with GMAIL using a email address in Chinese (provided by domestic email service provider COREMAIL), and the results showed that GMAIL is capable of smooth correspondences with email addresses in other languages now.
