(synopsis "Mail library for Ruby")
"Mail is an internet library for Ruby that is designed to handle email
generation, parsing and sending. The purpose of this library is to provide
a single point of access to handle all email functions, including sending
and receiving emails. All network type actions are done through proxy
methods to @code{Net::SMTP}, @code{Net::POP3} etc.
Mail has been designed with a very simple object oriented system that
really opens up the email messages you are parsing, if you know what you
are doing, you can fiddle with every last bit of your email directly.")
