in reply to mime::lite $msg->send erratic

Are you sure it's not a restriction ?
Your attachments may be under the gateway's limit taken piece by piece, but it may not be the case when you attach all of them.
Replace the server & domain parts below, and have a look.
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use Net::SMTP; use IO::Scalar; my $smtp; my $debug = ''; tie *STDERR, 'IO::Scalar', \$debug; $smtp = Net::SMTP->new('your.smtp.server', Hello => '', Timeout => 30, Debug => 1, ); $smtp->quit(); untie *STDERR; print grep {/SIZE/} (split(/\n/,$debug));
Note: the STDERR redirection comes from this node, and if you look at MIME::Lite's docs, you'll notice MIME::Lite->send accepts a "sub" facility, where you could plug a variant of the snippet, to "enable" debugging. Take a look at send_by_smtp's source for further inspiration on how to do it.
Update: Actually, calling MIME::Lite->send_by_smtp with Debug => 1 as part of it's args may be simpler (haven't tried)

    Thanks for the tip. I did not have Scaler installed. I will install this as it seems very useful, but adding the debug option finally gave me the message that it is indeed the gateway limitation. Thanks
