Mail::Message::Field::Address - One e-mail address
Mail::Message::Field::Address is a Mail::Identity is a User::Identity::Item
my $addr = Mail::Message::Field::Address->new(...); my $ui = User::Identity->new(...); my $addr = Mail::Message::Field::Address->coerce($ui); my $mi = Mail::Identity->new(...); my $addr = Mail::Message::Field::Address->coerce($mi); print $addr->address; print $addr->fullName; # possibly unicode! print $addr->domain;
Many header fields can contain e-mail addresses. Each e-mail address can be represented by an object of this class. These objects will handle interpretation and character set encoding and decoding for you.
The object used as boolean will always return
Two address objects are the same when their email addresses are the same.
When the object is used in string context, it will return the encoded representation of the e-mail address, just like string() does.
Try to coerce the OBJECT into a
Mail::Message::Field::Address. In case of a STRING, it is interpreted as an email address.
The OPTIONS are passed to the object creation, and overrule the values found in the OBJECT. The result may be
undef or a newly created object. If the OBJECT is already of the correct type, it is returned unmodified.
Parse the string for an address. You never know whether one or more addresses are specified on a line (often applications are wrong), therefore, the STRING is first parsed for as many addresses as possible and then the one is taken at random.
Character-set encoding, like 'q' and 'b', to be used when non-ascii characters are to be transmitted.
Returns an RFC compliant e-mail address, which will have character set encoding if needed. The objects are also overloaded to call this method in string context.
print $address->string; print $address; # via overloading
The first argument is an object, but not of a class which extends User::Identity::Collection.
When addresses are specified to be included in header fields, they may be coerced into Mail::Message::Field::Address objects first. What you specify is not accepted as address specification. This may be an internal error.
Either the specified $type does not exist, or that module named $class returns compilation errors. If the type as specified in the warning is not the name of a package, you specified a nickname which was not defined. Maybe you forgot the 'require' the package which defines the nickname.
The $class did compile, but it was not possible to create an object of that class using the options you specified.
If you add a collection, it must either by a collection object or a list of options which can be used to create a collection object. In the latter case, the type of collection must be specified.
The collection with $name does not exist and can not be created.
