Zend_Mime_Message represents a MIME compliant message that can contain one or more separate Parts (Represented as Zend_Mime_Part objects). With Zend_Mime_Message, MIME compliant multipart messages can be generated from Zend_Mime_Part objects. Encoding and Boundary handling are handled transparently by the class. Zend_Mime_Message objects can also be reconstructed from given strings (experimental). Used by Zend_Mail.
There is no explicit constructor for Zend_Mime_Message.
Adding MIME Parts
Objects can be added to a given Zend_Mime_Message object by
An array with all Zend_Mime_Part
objects in the Zend_Mime_Message is returned
from the method
->getParts(). The Zend_Mime_Part
objects can then be changed since they are stored in the array as references. If
parts are added to the array or the sequence is changed, the array needs
to be given back to the Zend_Mime_Part
object by calling
->isMultiPart() will return TRUE if
more than one part is registered with the Zend_Mime_Message
object and thus the object would generate a Multipart-Mime-Message when generating the
Zend_Mime_Message usually creates and uses its own
Zend_Mime Object to generate a boundary. If you need to define
the boundary or want to change the behaviour of the Zend_Mime
object used by Zend_Mime_Message, you can instantiate the
Zend_Mime object yourself and then register it to
Zend_Mime_Message. Usually you will not need to do this.
->setMime(Zend_Mime $mime) sets a special instance of
Zend_Mime to be used by this
->getMime() returns the instance of
Zend_Mime that will be used to render the message when
generateMessage() is called.
->generateMessage() renders the Zend_Mime_Message
content to a string.
parsing a string to create a Zend_Mime_Message object (experimental)
A given MIME compliant message in string form can be used to reconstruct a Zend_Mime_Message Object from it. Zend_Mime_Message has a static factory Method to parse this String and return a Zend_Mime_Message Object.
decodes the given string and returns a Zend_Mime_Message
Object that can then be examined using
