Mail::Message::Head::ListGroup - mailinglist related header fields
Mail::Message::Head::ListGroup is a Mail::Message::Head::FieldGroup is a Mail::Reporter

A list group is a set of header fields which are added by mailing-list managing software. This class knowns various details about that software.
The knowledge and test messages which are used to initially implement this module is taken from Mail::ListDetector, written by Michael Stevens <mailto:email@example.com>. The logic is redesigned to add flexibility and use the powerful MailBox features.
Returns a Mail::Message::Field::Address object (or
undef) which defines the posting address of the mailing list.
Mail::Message::Head::ListGroup based in the specified MESSAGE or message HEAD.
Returns the name of the mailing list, which is usually a part of the e-mail address which is used to post the messages to.
Construct an object which maintains one set of mailing list headers
-Option --Defined in --Default address undef head Mail::Message::Head::FieldGroup undef listname <derived from address> log Mail::Reporter 'WARNINGS' rfc undef software Mail::Message::Head::FieldGroup undef trace Mail::Reporter 'WARNINGS' type Mail::Message::Head::FieldGroup undef version Mail::Message::Head::FieldGroup undef
A short textual representation of the mailing-list.
Defines the mailing list software follows an rfc.
When the mailing list software follows the guidelines of one of the dedicated RFCs, then this will be returned otherwise
undef. The return values can be
Scan the header for fields which are usually contained in mailing list software. This method is automatically called when a list group is constructed from() an existing header or message.
Returned are the names of the list header fields found, in scalar context the amount. An empty list/zero indicates that this is not a mailing list message.
Please warn the author of MailBox if you see that to few or too many fields are included.
Produce information about the detected/create list group, which may be helpful during debugging, by default to the selected file handle.
The Mail::Message::Head::ListGroup class can detect many different mailing lists, some of which are very popular and some of which are rare.
Numerous fields in a header are addded when the message is passed through a mailing list server. Each list software has defined its own fields, sometimes woth conflicting definitions. There are also two RFCs about mailing list:
The following lists are currently detected. Between parenthesis is the string returned by type() when that differs from the software name.

Fatal error: the specific package (or one of its superclasses) does not implement this method where it should. This message means that some other related classes do implement this method however the class at hand does not. Probably you should investigate this and probably inform the author of the package.
