NAME ^

Mail::Server::IMAP4::Fetch - message info for IMAP protocol speed-up

SYNOPSIS ^

 my $imap = Mail::Server::IMAP4::Fetch->new($msg);
 print $imap->fetchBody(1);   # for FETCH BODYSTRUCTURE
 print $imap->fetchBody;      # for FETCH BODY
 print $imap->fetchEnvelope;  # for FETCH ENVELOPE
 print $imap->fetchSize;

DESCRIPTION ^

Create a new object hierarchy, which contains information to capture the most important details about the message. The object can be used to speed-up IMAP-server implementations, as Mail::Box::Netzwert.

The object used here is a simplified representation of a Mail::Box::Message object. It does not maintain headers and does not refer to the folder. It only works with messages stored in a file. Therefore, this object can be frozen by Storable if you want to.

Attributes

$obj->partLocation()

IMAP Commands

$obj->fetchBody(EXTENDED)

Returns one string, representing the message's structure as defined by the IMAP protocol. The boolean argument indicates whether you like to have the EXTENDED information, as the imap command 'FETCH BODYSTRUCTURE' defines or the limited information of 'FETCH BODY'.

$obj->fetchEnvelope()

Returns a string representation of some header information.

$obj->fetchSize()

Returns the size of the message body.

$obj->part([PARTNR])

The partnummer is a list of dot-separated positive integers, numbering (nested) parts in multi-part message bodies. By default, the info of the main message is returned.

example:

 my $partinfo = $msg->info->part('1.2.1');
 print $msg->info->part('3.3')->fetchBody;
$obj->printStructure([FILEHANDLE|undef, [NUMBER]])

Print the structure of the fetch data to the specified FILEHANDLE or the selected filehandle. When explicitly undef is specified as handle, then the output will be returned as string. Only a limited set of the information is displayed.

example:

 my $imap = ...;
 $imap->printStructure(\*OUTPUT);
 $imap->printStructure;
 my $struct = $imap->printStructure(undef);
