NAME ^

Mail::Message::Head::ListGroup - mailinglist related header fields

INHERITANCE ^

 Mail::Message::Head::ListGroup
   is a Mail::Message::Head::FieldGroup
   is a Mail::Reporter

SYNOPSIS ^

 my $lg = Mail::Message::Head::ListGroup->new(head => $head, ...);
 $head->addListGroup($lg);

 my $lg = $head->addListGroup(...);

 $lg->delete;

DESCRIPTION ^

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:michael@etla.org>. The logic is redesigned to add flexibility and use the powerful MailBox features.

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.

DETAILS ^

Mailing list fields

Detected lists

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: rfc2919 and rfc2369.

The following lists are currently detected. Between parenthesis is the string returned by type() when that differs from the software name.

DIAGNOSTICS ^

Error: Cannot convert "$string" into an address object

The new(address) is coerced into a Mail::Message::Field::Address, which fails. Have a look at Mail::Message::Field::Address::coerce() to see what valid arguments are.

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.
