Overview

Date Field

The Date field inherits from StructuredField and handles the Date: header field in the email.

Sending date to a mail message will instantiate a Mail::Field object that has a DateField as its field type. This includes all Mail::CommonAddress module instance methods.

There must be excatly one Date field in an RFC2822 email.

Examples:

mail = Mail.new
mail.date = 'Mon, 24 Nov 1997 14:22:01 -0800'
mail.date       #=> #<DateTime: 211747170121/86400,-1/3,2299161>
mail.date.to_s  #=> 'Mon, 24 Nov 1997 14:22:01 -0800'
mail[:date]     #=> '#<Mail::Field:0x180e5e8 @field=#<Mail::DateField:0x180e1c4
mail['date']    #=> '#<Mail::Field:0x180e5e8 @field=#<Mail::DateField:0x180e1c4
mail['Date']    #=> '#<Mail::Field:0x180e5e8 @field=#<Mail::DateField:0x180e1c4
