Read a message from a FILEHANDLE, SCALAR, a reference to a SCALAR, or
a reference to an array of LINES. Most OPTIONS are passed to the new()
of the message which is created, but a few extra are defined.
Please have a look at build() and buildFromBody() before thinking about this read method. Use this read only when you have a file-handle like STDIN to parse from, or some external source of message lines. When you already have a separate set of head and body lines, then read is certainly <B>notB> your best choice.
Some people use this method in a procmail script: the message arrives at stdin, so we only have a filehandle. In this case, you are stuck with this method. The message is preceded by a line which can be used as message separator in mbox folders. See the example how to handle that one.
This method will remove Status and X-Status fields when they appear in the source, to avoid the risk that these fields accidentally interfere with your internal administration, which may have security implications.
