Appy16 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I've a script through which i'm trying to send multiple attachments. But the problem is that only a single attachment is being sent.I've tried other methods like MIME::Lite and Net::SMTP, but they are not much helpful as they send the Email into the SPAM/JUNK folder.I am posting my script below kindly help me out. thanx in advance.
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use LWP::Simple; use Email::Send; use Email::Send::Gmail; use Email::MIME::Creator; use IO::All; my $url = ""; my $file = "/Users/Abc/Desktop/MB.csv"; my $status = mirror($url,$file); die "Cannot retrieve $url" unless is_success($status); my $url1 = ""; my $file1 = "/Users/Abc/Desktop/M.csv"; my $status1 = mirror($url1,$file1); die "Cannot retrieve $url" unless is_success($status1); my $email = Email::MIME->create( header => [ From => '', To => '', Subject => 'ABCD', ], attributes => [ { filename =>"MB.csv", content_type =>"application/csv", disposition =>"attachment", Name =>"/Users/Abc/Desktop/MB.csv", }, body => io( "/Users/Abc/Desktop/MB.csv" )->all, { filename =>"M.csv", content_type =>"application/csv", disposition =>"attachment", Name =>"/Users/ab/Desktop/M.csv", }, body => io( "/Users/Abc/Desktop/M.csv" )->all, ], ); my $sender = Email::Send->new( { mailer => 'Gmail', mailer_args => [ username => '', password => '1234qwerty', ] } ); eval { $sender->send($email) }; die "Error sending email: $@" if $@;

    If you look at the synopsis of Email::MIME, you'll see that the structure of a multipart mail looks like this:

    # multipart message my @parts = ( Email::MIME->create( attributes => { ... }, body => io( ... )->all, ), Email::MIME->create( attributes => { ... }, body => io( ... )->all, ), ); my $email = Email::MIME->create( header => [ ... ], parts => [ @parts ], );

    In other words, you cannot simply stick all your body parts in attributes (which needs to be a hashref, btw, not arrayref, as you have it!).  Rather, create individual parts, and stick them in parts => [ ... ].

    P.S.: please use an identation that reflects the logical nesting of things...

    You seem to be using Email::MIME in an undocumented way, I suggest you follow the documentation exactly (see examples t/nested-parts.t and t/multipart.t)

    Also, you need to clean your room better, as the mirroring/IO::All portion of your program doesn't seem to relate to your problem.

      As far as I've understood from a previous post, the OP's special constraint is that the mail must be sent using Email::Send::Gmail, as the module appears to be the only one that out-of-the-box gets the authentication right, i.e. that the mail won't end up in the recipient's spam folder when the mail is being sent from one gmail account to another.

      You have nothing on Email::Simple other than your module isn't available and/or on CPAN.

        The dbS::Email module is just an example on how you might write a module to send attachments.
