NAME ^

MMS::Mail::Message - A class representing an MMS (or picture) message sent via email.

VERSION ^

Version 0.06

SYNOPSIS ^

This class is used by MMS::Mail::Parser to provide an itermediate data storage class after the MMS has been parsed by the parse method but before it has been through the second stage of parsing (the MMS::Mail::Parser provider_parse method). If this doesn't make sense then take a look at MMS::Mail::Parser to get an idea where this module fits in before progressing any further.

METHODS ^

The following are the top-level methods of the MMS::Mail::Message class.

Constructor

new()

Return a new MMS::Mail::Message object. Valid attributes are any public accessor outlined in the Regular Methods section below.

Regular Methods

header_datetime STRING

Instance method - Returns the time and date the MMS was received when invoked with no supplied parameter. When supplied with a parameter it sets the object property to the supplied parameter.

header_from STRING

Instance method - Returns the sending email address the MMS was sent from when invoked with no supplied parameter. When supplied with a parameter it sets the object property to the supplied parameter.

header_to STRING

Instance method - Returns the recieving email address the MMS was sent to when invoked with no supplied parameter. When supplied with a parameter it sets the object property to the supplied parameter.

header_subject STRING

Instance method - Returns the MMS subject when invoked with no supplied parameter. When supplied with a parameter it sets the object property to the supplied parameter.

header_received_from STRING

Instance method - Returns the email server that (last) sent the mms when invoked with no supplied parameter. When supplied with a parameter it sets the object property to the supplied parameter.

body_text STRING

Instance method - Returns the MMS bodytext when invoked with no supplied parameter. When supplied with a paramater it sets the object property to the supplied parameter.

strip_characters STRING

Instance method - The supplied string should be a set of characters valid for use in a regular expression character class s/[]//g. When set with a value the property is used by the header_from, header_to, header_datetime, body_text and header_subject methods to remove these characters from their respective properties (in both the MMS::Mail::Message and MMS::Mail::Message::Parsed classes).

cleanse_map HASHREF

Instance method - This method allows a regular expression or subroutine reference to be applied when an accessor sets a value, allowing message values to be cleansed or modified. These accessors are header_from, header_to, body_text, header_datetime and header_subject.

The method expects a hash reference with key values as one of the above public accessor method names and values as a scalar in the form of a regular expression or as a subroutine reference.

attachments ARRAYREF

Instance method - Returns an array reference to the array of MMS message attachments. When supplied with a parameter it sets the object property to the supplied parameter.

add_attachment MIME::Entity

Instance method - Adds the supplied MIME::Entity attachment to the attachment stack for the message. This method is mainly used by the MMS::Mail::Parser class to add attachments while parsing.

is_valid

Instance method - Returns true or false depending if the header_datetime, header_from and header_to fields are all populated or not.

set

Instance method - Overides the Class::Accessor superclass set method to apply cleanse_map and strip_character functionality to accessors.
