Header Object

The Header object gives programmatic access to email headers. It is primarily used from transaction.header but also each MIME part of the Body will also have its own header object.

API

  • header.get(key)

Returns the header with the name key. If there are multiple headers with the given name (as is usually the case with "Received" for example) they will be concatenated together with "\n".

  • header.get_all(key)

Returns the headers with the name key as an array. Multi-valued headers will have multiple entries in the array.

  • header.get_decoded(key)

Works like get(key), only it gives you headers decoded from any MIME encoding they may have used.

  • header.remove(key)

Removes all headers with the given name. DO NOT USE. This is transparent to the transaction and it will not see the header(s) you removed. Instead use transaction.remove_header(key) which will also correct the data part of the email.

  • header.add(key, value)

Adds a header with the given name and value. DO NOT USE. This is transparent to the transaction and it will not see the header you added. Instead use transaction.add_header(key, value) which will add the header to the data part of the email.

  • header.lines()

Returns the entire header as a list of lines.

  • header.toString()

Returns the entire header as a string.
