Decode a mail with MIME::Parserby RuneK (Sexton)
|on Sep 02, 2002 at 13:27 UTC||Need Help??|
RuneK has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hi all, I'm writing a script to decode a mail so that I ONLY get the:
to from cc subject body
I'm using the MIME::Parser to decode the mail, but I run into some very anoying mail format problems.
When I send a mail from hotmail the body contains a lot of HTML that I do not need in the pure format. The from field sometimes contain an alias in this way:
"Usern name" email@example.com
where I only want the pure mail address.
So my question is. What is the trick to ONLY the the pure information from a mail where the mails format can wary a lot in the header and body section?
Best regards, RuneK
