Scribe Document Object Modal

This document describes the Scribe Document Object Model which is to address fields inside objects. Fields can be used in filters, templates, item preview and scripts. Each object in Scribe will export a number of fields that can either be values or references to other objects. If you try and reference an Object that doesn't exist then the value returned will be NULL.

Mail Fields

Object::Address From
Object::Address[] To
String Subject
Int Size Size in bytes of body and attachments.
String MessageID
String InternetHeaders All the headers
String[] InternetHeader A specific header, e.g. InternetHeader["Subject"]
Int Priority 1=Low, 3=Normal, 5=High
String Body The text version of the message. You can optionally use brackets to extract a internet style header from the body. e.g. Body["Foo"] would return the string 'Bar' if the message's text was:
Gah: Fob
Boo: Magh
Foo: Bar
Roob: Maar bro hoo

String BodyAsText The text part if present, or a text version of a HTML only email. Html -> Text conversion is rough at best. This is used primarily by the reply and forward functions to give the user something to reply/forward with if the message is HTML only.

Another great use for this field is filtering HTML spam mail. Which often tries to put tags and comments inside a word to stop word based filters triggering. This field removes those tags and comments and allows you to check just the text of the mail, which works rather well.

String Html The HTML version of the message if any. Otherwise NULL.
String DateSent
String DateReceived

                                           // say "send". At which point this flag
