NAME ^

Email::FolderType - determine the type of a mail folder

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Email::FolderType qw(folder_type);

  print folder_type "~/mymbox";     # prints 'Mbox'
  print folder_type "~/a_maildir/"; # prints 'Maildir'
  print folder_type "some_mh/.";    # prints 'MH'
  print folder_type "an_archive//"; # prints 'Ezmlm'

DESCRIPTION ^

Provides a utility subroutine for detecting the type of a given mail folder.

SUBROUTINES ^

folder_type <path>

Automatically detects what type of mail folder the path refers to and returns the name of that type.

It primarily bases the type on the suffix of the path given.

  Suffix | Type
 --------+---------
  /      | Maildir
  /.     | MH
  //     | Ezmlm

In case of no known suffix it checks for a known file structure. If that doesn't work out it defaults to Mbox.
