I am not sure what you mean, but the class does not parse the message, 
but rather encodes it in a way that it will not be refused by some mail

Encoding in MIME is generally a requirement for sending messages, but 
even if it were not usually required, what would be the importance of 
not doing it?

You can always send your messages directly to the recipients SMTP server 
with this class:


But if you do not format the message according to the MIME standards, 
chances are that your message is refused, bounced or even discarded by 
some SPAM filter.
