    I wonder if you could straighten me out - I've been through the tutorial (thank you VERY much!) and have sent myself an html message, which is the first part of what I wanted. However I tried to attach a pdf file as described - which was sent, but without the html message! Then I tried sending a second pdf file and I got only that second file. Obviously the way I have got it is each part mutually exclusive, where I want inclusive. The following is the complete code I am using, perhaps my mistakes can be pointed out?
    #!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use CGI::Carp qw(fatalsToBrowser warningsToBrowser); use CGI ':standard'; use MIME::Lite::TT::HTML; my %params; foreach my $name (param( )) { $params{$name} = param($name); } print "Content-type: text/html\n\n"; my $host_serv = '/path/host_serv.pdf'; my $prem_serv = '/path/prem_serv.pdf'; my %options; # $options{INCLUDE_PATH} = '/path/to/templates'; my $msg = MIME::Lite::TT::HTML->new( From => '', To => $params{'emailto'}, Subject => 'Your recent purchase', Template => { html => '', }, TmplOptions => \%options, TmplParams => \%params, ); $msg->attach( Type => 'application/pdf', Path => $host_serv, Filename => 'host.pdf', Disposition => 'attachment' ); $msg->attach( Type => 'application/pdf', Path => $prem_serv, Filename => 'guest.pdf', Disposition => 'attachment' ); $msg->send;

      The problem is you haven't told the MIME::Lite::TT::HTML object what encoding to use. Since you want to send attachments that type should be 'multipart/mixed'. It should just be a matter of adding this argument to your call to new():

      Type => 'multipart/mixed'
