The message

Extends "The message" in Mail::Box::Message.

$obj->container()

Inherited, see "The message" in Mail::Message

$obj->copyTo($folder, %options)

Inherited, see "The message" in Mail::Box::Message

$obj->escapedBody()

Mbox folders contain multiple messages in one file, using a separator line to keep them apart. Typically, these lines start with "From ". Lines within the message could interfere with this separator, and should therefore be translated.

This method will return the escaped text of the body as reference.

$obj->folder( [$folder] )

Inherited, see "The message" in Mail::Box::Message

$obj->fromLine( [$line] )

Many people detest file-style folders because they store messages all in one file, where a line starting with From leads the header. If we receive a message from a file-based folder, we store that line. If we write to such a file, but there is no such line stored, then we try to generate one.

If $line is provided, then the starting line is set to this value.

$obj->size()

$obj->toplevel()

Inherited, see "The message" in Mail::Message

$obj->write( [$fh] )

Write one message to a file handle. It is the message including the leading 'From ' line and trailing blank. The From-line may interfere with lines in the body: those lines are escaped with an extra '>'.

example:

 $msg->write(\*FILE);    # print the message with encaps to FILE
 $msg->write;            # message with encaps to selected filehandle
 $msg->print(\*FILE);    # the message without encaps.

DIAGNOSTICS ^

Error: Cannot coerce a $class object into a $class object
Error: Cannot include forward source as $include.

Unknown alternative for the forward(include). Valid choices are NO, INLINE, ATTACH, and ENCAPSULATE.

Error: Cannot include reply source as $include.

Unknown alternative for the include option of reply(). Valid choices are NO, INLINE, and ATTACH.

Error: Method bounce requires To, Cc, or Bcc

The message bounce() method forwards a received message off to someone else without modification; you must specified it's new destination. If you have the urge not to specify any destination, you probably are looking for reply(). When you wish to modify the content, use forward().

Error: Method forwardAttach requires a preamble
Error: Method forwardEncapsulate requires a preamble
Error: No address to create forwarded to.

If a forward message is created, a destination address must be specified.

Error: No default mailer found to send message.

The message send() mechanism had not enough information to automatically find a mail transfer agent to sent this message. Specify a mailer explicitly using the via options.

Error: No rebuild rule $name defined.
Error: Only build() Mail::Message's; they are not in a folder yet

You may wish to construct a message to be stored in a some kind of folder, but you need to do that in two steps. First, create a normal Mail::Message, and then add it to the folder. During this Mail::Box::addMessage() process, the message will get coerce()-d into the right message type, adding storage information and the like.

Error: Package $package does not implement $method.

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.

Error: Unable to read delayed body.
Error: coercion starts with some object
