    its installed now, but im getting a different problem now, i just asked above

      Lol... I think that Email::Send::SMTP::Gmail has a bug on the first line in v0.43. And taking a closer look at the module's test suite does nothing to instill confidence in the module; there are essentially no tests other than "Does the module load? Yes."

      I can't right now, but try changing line one of the module from package Gmail; to package Email::Send::SMTP::Gmail;, and if that fixes your issue, file a bug report. ;)


        hey,its still not working,, i think i'll file the bug report,, thanks anyways :)

    Is there a way to send several attachments in the same email?

      Since the field for sending attachments is called -attachments (a plural), I assumed so, so I checked the documentation at Email::Send::SMTP::Gmail and found the examples provided therein to be pretty straightforward.

      So the answer to your question is 'Yes.', and the support for that answer is in the module's documentation.


      See MIME::Lite for how to create multiple attachments. You can then send the created message through whatever means you find suitable.
