in thread SMTP auth() command not supported on smtp.live.com

Hi, Corion, Thanks for your reply. I'm on Windows, I don't know basename() function, so I changed to absolutely path, but I still got the same result, the pdf file is not correct.

my $filename = "E:/test.pdf"; my $type = "application/pdf"; $msg->attach( Type => $type, Disposition => 'attachment', Path => $filename, Filename => $filename, Binmode => 1, ) or die "Error adding PDF: $!\n";

    opps.. it seems very interesting, in that program, the attachment size is always 11.4KB, no matter what file type and what file size...so strange..

      I would try with a mail sender and recipient that are not hotmail, and I would also try sending a plain text attachment.

      If sending a plain text attachment works, then it is a problem with binmode not being applied, somewhere along the chain.

      If the problem goes away by not using Hotmail as the first SMTP server, or goes away by using a different recipient than Hotmail, then the problem is how Hotmail handles (this kind of) attachments.

      I had tried with other email account (not hotmail), however, things become more interesting. The orignal pdf file is cuted by many small files, each file has the same file name and file size(11.4KB). I guess that would not the problem of the email account, but the problem of the programe.
