Subject [jira] Commented: (EMAIL-56) [Email] Parsing MIME content.
Date Fri, 02 Feb 2007 00:03:06 GMT


Ben Speakmon commented on EMAIL-56:

One of the MimeMessage constructors in JavaMail (both 1.3 and 1.4) already does this, BTW.

I'm not sure this is something that falls within commons-email's scope. The commons-email
API, I think, is for the common cases where you just want to build and send an email without
needing the power (or complexity) of JavaMail. If you're already pulling messages from an
email server, I don't know why you wouldn't just use JavaMail for manipulating it -- the power
and complexity is just what you need for those kinds of jobs. And it doesn't seem worth the
trouble to duplicate any of that code in commons-email when the existing code works just fine.

If you can suggest a compelling use case for this, I can look further into it.
