    You shouldn't wildly expect things, but read the docs instead:
    The constructor reads a mail message from STDIN (or, if the data option is set, from an array reference or \*GLOBref) and creates a Mail::Audit object from it.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "read the mail from user mail". If you mean from the user's local mailbox, Mail::Audit is typically used on mail before it's delivered locally.
