Overview

From Field

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

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

Only one From field can appear in a header, though it can have multiple addresses and groups of addresses.

Examples:

mail = Mail.new
mail.from = 'Mikel Lindsaar <[email protected]>, [email protected]'
mail.from    #=> ['[email protected]', '[email protected]']
mail[:from]  #=> '#<Mail::Field:0x180e5e8 @field=#<Mail::FromField:0x180e1c4
mail['from'] #=> '#<Mail::Field:0x180e5e8 @field=#<Mail::FromField:0x180e1c4
mail['From'] #=> '#<Mail::Field:0x180e5e8 @field=#<Mail::FromField:0x180e1c4

mail[:from].encoded   #=> 'from: Mikel Lindsaar <[email protected]>, [email protected]\r\n'
mail[:from].decoded   #=> 'Mikel Lindsaar <[email protected]>, [email protected]'
mail[:from].addresses #=> ['[email protected]', '[email protected]']
mail[:from].formatted #=> ['Mikel Lindsaar <[email protected]>', '[email protected]']
