parser_email

I needed a parser for Email, so I wrote one. At the moment it doesn't do much but parse the headers. Feel free to contribute.

Install

npm install parser_email

Example

This assumes that the file is saved somewhere on the file system, but it can easily be any type of incoming stream. var fs = require('fs') , sys = require('sys') , em_parse = require('parser_email')

var mail = '';
var path_to_email = '~/emails/email.eml';

stream = fs.ReadStream(path_to_email);
stream.setEncoding('ascii');

stream.on('data', function(data) {
	mail += data;
});

stream.on('close', function () {
	parser = em_parse.parser_email();
	parser.setContent(mail);
	email  = parser.parseMail();
});

//Output the headers
sys.puts(sys.inspect(email.header))
//Output the body
sys.puts(sys.inspect(email.body))
