 * This class is used to construct a bare minimum
 * acceptable header for an email message.  To construct more
 * complicated headers you should refer to RFC 5322.  When the
 * Java Mail API is finalized, you will be
 * able to use it to compose fully compliant Internet text messages.
 * <p>
 * The main purpose of the class is to faciliatate the mail sending
 * process, by relieving the programmer from having to explicitly format
 * a simple message header.  For example:
 * <pre>
 * writer = client.sendMessageData();
 * if(writer == null) // failure
 *   return false;
 * header =
 *    new SimpleSMTPHeader("", "" "Just testing");
 * header.addCC("");
 * header.addHeaderField("Organization", "Foobar, Inc.");
 * writer.write(header.toString());
 * writer.write("This is just a test");
 * writer.close();
 * if(!client.completePendingCommand()) // failure
 *   return false;
 * </pre>
 * @see SMTPClient

     * Creates a new SimpleSMTPHeader instance initialized with the given
     * from, to, and subject header field values.
     * <p>
     * @param from  The value of the <code>From:</code> header field.  This
     *              should be the sender's email address.
     *              Must not be null.
     * @param to    The value of the <code>To:</code> header field.  This
     *              should be the recipient's email address.
     *              May be null
     * @param subject  The value of the <code>Subject:</code> header field.
     *              This should be the subject of the message.

     * Add an email address to the CC (carbon copy or courtesy copy) list.
     * <p>
     * @param address The email address to add to the CC list.

     * the form of a String, including the blank line used to separate
