               logger      => $logger,

       This class is a filter module class for use with Courier::Filter.  It matches a message if
       one of the message's header fields matches the configured criteria.

       The following constructor is provided:

       new(%options): returns Courier::Filter::Module::Header
           Creates a new Header filter module.

           %options is a list of key/value pairs representing any of the following options:

               Required.  A reference to a hash containing the message header field names and
               patterns (as key/value pairs) that messages are to be matched against.  Field
               names are matched case-insensitively.  Patterns may either be simple strings (for
               exact, case-sensitive matches) or regular expression objects created by the "qr//"
               operator (for inexact, partial matches).

               So for instance, to match any message from the "debian-devel" mailing list with
               the subject containing something about 'duelling banjoes', you could set the
               "fields" option as follows:

                   fields      => {
                      'list-id'    => '<>',
                       subject     => qr/duell?ing\s+banjoe?s?/i

               A string that is to be returned literally as the match result in case of a match.
               Defaults to "Prohibited header value detected: <field>: <value>".

           All options of the Courier::Filter::Module constructor are also supported.  Please see
           "new()" in Courier::Filter::Module for their descriptions.

   Instance methods
       See "Instance methods" in Courier::Filter::Module for a description of the provided
       instance methods.
