    Summary     : RFC 2822 Address Parsing and Creation (DEPRECATED)
    Description :
    This class implements a regex-based RFC 2822 parser that locates email
    addresses in strings and returns a list of Email::Address objects found.
    Alternatively you may construct objects manually. The goal of this software
    is to be correct, and very very fast.
