Send HTML File as an Attachement

phildeman has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I like using MIME::Lite for sending e-mail. It's quick and simple. However, I would like to send an HTML file as an attachment. Has anyone submitted an HTML file as an attachment, using MIME::Lite? If yes, can you provide an example of your code? Or if not MIME::Lite, do you know of another Perl package that will send an HTML file as an attachment? Thanks for your help. -Phil-

    I think MIME::Lite can do what you are asking. Check the docs here.

    The basic code (taken straight from that page) is:

    $msg = MIME::Lite->new( To =>'', Subject =>'HTML with in-line images!', Type =>'multipart/related' ); $msg->attach( Type => 'text/html', Data => qq{ <body> Here's <i>my</i> image: <img src="cid:myimage.gif"> </body> }, ); $msg->attach( Type => 'image/gif', Id => 'myimage.gif', Path => '/path/to/somefile.gif', ); $msg->send();
    Though you might not need the image parts.
