Body Object

The Body object gives you access to the textual body parts of an email.


  • body.bodytext

A String containing the body text. Note that HTML parts will have tags in-tact.

  • body.header

The header of this MIME part. See the Header Object for details of the API.

  • body.children

Any child MIME parts. For example a multipart/alternative mail will have a main body part with just the MIME preamble in (which is usually either empty, or reads something like “This is a multipart MIME message”), and two children, one text/plain and one text/html.
