# Import the email modules we'll need
#from email.parser import BytesParser
from email.parser import Parser
from email.policy import default
# If the e-mail headers are in a file, uncomment these two lines:
# with open(messagefile, 'rb') as fp:
# headers = BytesParser(policy=default).parse(fp)
# Or for parsing headers in a string (this is an uncommon operation), use:
headers = Parser(policy=default).parsestr(
'From: Foo Bar <>\n'
'To: <>\n'
'Subject: Test message\n'
'Body would go here\n')
# Now the header items can be accessed as a dictionary:
print('To: {}'.format(headers['to']))
print('From: {}'.format(headers['from']))
print('Subject: {}'.format(headers['subject']))
# You can also access the parts of the addresses:
print('Recipient username: {}'.format(headers['to'].addresses[0].username))
print('Sender name: {}'.format(headers['from'].addresses[0].display_name))
