TIdMessageClient Class

Implements an Internet Message Format client.

TIdMessageClient = class(TIdExplicitTLSClient);

TIdMessageClient is a TIdTCPClientCustom descendant that implements a generic Internet Message Format client. TIdMessageClient can read and write Internet messages compliant with the RFC 2822 message specification, as described in the Internet Standards document: 

RFC 2822 - Internet Message Format  

TIdMessageClient provides methods and properties needed to handle transmission and receipt of both the headers and the body for an Internet message, including line folding. TIdMessageClient also implements message processing methods used to convert the RFC 2822 header values in a message to properties in a TIdMessage instance. 

TIdMessageClient is the ancestor for classes that implement support for specific transport protocols like IMAP4, POP3, NNTP, and SMTP.
