Mail_Mime::get() – build the message


require_once 'Mail/mime.php';

string &get ( array $param = null , resource $filename = null , boolean $skip_head = false )


This function should be called once you have added the text/html/images/attachments. It builds the message and returns it. It does not send it. To send what this function returns (in conjunction with the headers() -function) you would need to use the Mail::send()-function


  • array $param - An associative array of build parameters. See constructor parameters list.

  • resource $filename - Optional output file where to save the message instead of returning it.

  • boolean $skip_head - True if you want to return/save only the message without headers.

Return value

string - the body of the message


This function can not be called statically.

For versions older than 1.6.0 Mail_Mime::get() has to be called before Mail_Mime::headers().
