__init__(self, _subtype='mixed', boundary=None, _subparts=None, **_params)
(Constructor)

 

Creates a multipart/* type message.

By default, creates a multipart/mixed message, with proper Content-Type and MIME-Version headers.

_subtype is the subtype of the multipart content type, defaulting to `mixed'.

boundary is the multipart boundary string. By default it is calculated as needed.

_subparts is a sequence of initial subparts for the payload. It must be an iterable object, such as a list. You can always attach new subparts to the message by using the attach() method.

Additional parameters for the Content-Type header are taken from the keyword arguments (or passed into the _params argument).

Overrides: message.Message.__init__
