NAME
       Palm::Mail - Handler for Palm Mail databases.

SYNOPSIS
           use Palm::Mail;

DESCRIPTION
       The Mail PDB handler is a helper class for the Palm::PDB package. It
       parses Mail databases.

       AppInfo block

       The AppInfo block begins with standard category support. See
       Palm::StdAppInfo for details.

       Other fields include:

           $pdb->{appinfo}{sortOrder}
           $pdb->{appinfo}{unsent}
           $pdb->{appinfo}{sigOffset}

       I don't know what these are.

       Sort block

           $pdb->{sort}

       This is a scalar, the raw data of the sort block.

       Records

           $record = $pdb->{records}[N]

           $record->{year}
           $record->{month}
           $record->{day}
           $record->{hour}
           $record->{minute}

       The message's timestamp.

           $record->{is_read}

       This is defined and true iff the message has been read.

           $record->{has_signature}

       For outgoing messages, this is defined and true iff the message should
       have a signature attached. The signature itself is stored in the "Saved
       Preferences.prc" database, and is of type "mail" with ID 2.

           $record->{confirm_read}

       If this is defined and true, then the sender requests notification when
       the message has been read.

           $record->{confirm_delivery}

       If this is defined and true, then the sender requests notification when
       the message has been delivered.

           $record->{priority}

       An integer in the range 0-2, for high, normal, or low priority,
       respectively.

           $record->{addressing}

       An integer in the range 0-2, indicating the addressing type: To, Cc, or
       Bcc respectively. I don't know what this means.

           $record->{subject}
           $record->{from}
           $record->{to}
           $record->{cc}
           $record->{bcc}
           $record->{replyTo}
           $record->{sentTo}

       Strings, the various header fields.

           $record->{body}

       A string, the body of the message.

METHODS
       new

         $pdb = new Palm::Mail;

       Create a new PDB, initialized with the various Palm::Mail fields and an
       empty record list.

       Use this method if you're creating a Mail PDB from scratch.

       new_Record

         $record = $pdb->new_Record;

       Creates a new Mail record, with blank values for all of the fields.

       "new_Record" does not add the new record to $pdb. For that, you want
       "$pdb->append_Record".

       Note: the time given by the "year", "month", "day", "hour", and
       "minute" fields in the new record are initialized to the time when the
       record was created. They should be reset to the time when the message
       was sent.
