This is RubyMail, a lightweight mail library containing various utility classes and modules that allow Ruby scripts to parse, modify, and generate MIME mail messages.
Ruby 1.6.7 (or newer) or Ruby 1.8.*. Only tested under Linux, should be fine under any Unix.
The documentation is in RDoc format in the doc subdirectory. Aside from the API reference, you will be interested in guide/Intro.txt and guide/TableOfContents.txt.
Type the following while in the package directory:
ruby install.rb config ruby install.rb setup ruby install.rb install
You may need special permissions to execute the last line. If you want to just install RubyMail to a custom location, just copy the rmail subdirectory manually.
This package works well, but I consider all API subject to change.
I very much appreciate suggestions and comments, but please think twice about using this for production use just yet.
This package has a complete unit test suite (requires RubyUnit to run). Currently all of my e-mail is processed by this library.
It is fun.
One use for RubyMail is the RubyFilter package, available at:
You might check out TMail as well.
