in reply to Mail modules on W2K

I'm not sure what mail modules are available for Win32 but I routinely use something like this for sending email via Microsoft Outlook. It works well enough if all you need to do is send email from the account on your Win2K box. You'll need Win32::OLE.

sub send_outlook_mail { #use OLE and Outlook to send an email message my $to = shift || croak "required parameter (to address) missing"; my $subject = shift; $subject = "" if not defined $subject; my $body = shift; $body = "" if not defined $body; my $cc = shift; $cc = "" if not defined $cc; #get new Outlook instance my $mail = new Win32::OLE('Outlook.Application'); croak "Unable to start Outlook instance: $!" if !defined $mail; my $item = $mail->CreateItem(0); croak "Unable to create mail item: $!" if !defined $item; $item->{'To'} = $to; $item->{'CC'} = $cc; $item->{'Subject'} = $subject; $item->{'Body'} = $body; #rest of args are file attachments foreach my $attach (@ARGV) { # print STDERR "File attachment: $attach\n"; #make sure the attachment is really there croak "Missing attachment $attach: $!" if !-e $attach; my $attachments = $item->Attachments(); $attachments->Add($attach); } #send it $item->Send(); my $error = Win32::OLE->LastError(); carp "Win32::OLE error: $error" if $error; } #sub send_outlook_mail
