in reply to email on WIN32

I've been using Email::Stuff lately. Doesn't get any easier. From the docs (with a mod for using SMTP):
# Prepare the message my $body = <<'AMBUSH_READY'; Dear Santa I have killed Bun Bun. Yes, I know what you are thinking... but it was actually a total acc +ident. I was in a crowded line at a BayWatch signing, and I tripped, and st +ood on his head. I know. Oops! :/ So anyways, I am willing to sell you the body for $1 million dollars +. Be near the pinhole to the Dimension of Pain at midnight. Alias AMBUSH_READY # Create and send the email in one shot Email::Stuff->from ('' ) ->to ('' ) ->bcc ('' ) ->text_body($body ) ->attach (io('dead_bunbun_faked.gif')->all, filename => 'dead_bunbun_proof.gif') ->using ('SMTP', Host => '') ->send;

    Hi Brent Here's what I'm doing (and it doesn't work). I'm feeling pretty stupid about this.
    use Email::Stuff; use IO::All; $body = 'this is a test'; # Create and send the email in one shot Email::Stuff->from ('' ) ->to ('' ) ->bcc ('' ) ->text_body($body ) ->attach (io('test.doc')->all, filename => 'test.doc') ->using ('SMTP', Host => '') ->send;
        sorry, of course 'it does not work' is not very helpful...unfortunately, there is no error printed so I have no idea what further information to include.

LanX WTF. Gernany beat Canada in ice hockey
[LanX]: Not fair ... I'm totally ignoring the doping games...
[Corion]: Huh? That's weird indeed... Also, I thought that the olympic games were over already, but obviously not ;)
[choroba]: And we lost to unknown sportspersons with no official dresses
[choroba]: Russia didn't send them officially, they're on vacation in Korea
[LanX]: no that was Syria! ;-)
[LanX]: And the reason is: The world’s best players aren’t at this year’s Games after the NHL stopped its athletes from leaving in the middle of the season. ... LOL
[LanX]: horoba: you like ice hockey?
[choroba]: Like is a too strong word. But you can't evade it here.
LanX (for people wondering: yes field hockey still exists and is even more popular than Hasslhoff in Germany)
