This read-only property specifies canonicalization type.
Canonicalization prepares the email for
signing or verification. It does not change the transmitted data in any way.
There are two types of canonization. A ‘simple’ algorithm that tolerates almost no modification and a ‘relaxed’ algorithm that tolerates common modifications as white-space replacement and header line re-wrapping.
