Method MIME.guess_subtype()


Method guess_subtype

string guess_subtype(string type)

Description

Provide a reasonable default for the subtype field.

Some pre-RFC 1521 mailers provide only a type and no subtype in the Content-Type header field. This function can be used to obtain a reasonable default subtype given the type of a message. (This is done automatically by the MIME.Message class.)

Currently, the function uses the following guesses:

"text"

"plain"

"message"

"rfc822"

"multipart"

"mixed"
