in reply to Perl and HTML E-mail

Just setting the header: "Content-type: text/html, charset=utf-8" before the email message body will inform your email client that your email is a HTML. No need to use any extra modules.

    Yeah, that was what I figured out myself as well, but I don't know how would I do change the content type header with Net::SMTP module?

    I found MIME::Lite::TT::HTML and even though I find the template solution to be a bit too much, it is really simple to use.

      $smtp=Net::SMTP->new('your smtp server'); $smtp->mail('your email address'); $smtp->to('Your reciepient'); $smtp->data(); $smtp->datasend("Content-type:TEXT/html,charset=utf-8\n"); $smtp->datasend("To: someone\@somedomain.com\n"); $smtp->datasend("\n"); $smtp->datasend("<html>Your html here!</html>"); $smtp->dataend(); $smtp->quit();
