( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
I want to send an HTML mail with an embedded gif from a Unix box to an NT Outlook client.
So I took the example code from the module Mail::Sender, changed the variables to my local ones and Hey Presto it doesn't work!
It sends the html and gif as attachments to a blank E-mail. The HTML should be the body not another attachment. Surely the example is bugged? Can anyone give a working example?
Thanks in advance
Heres the example copied from the documentation
If you want to send a HTML with some inline images : use strict; use Mail::Sender; my $recipients = 'somebody@somewhere.com'; my $sender = new Mail::Sender {smtp => 'your.mailhost.com'}; if ($sender->OpenMultipart({from => 'itstech2@gate.net', to => $ +recipients, subject => 'Embedded Image Test', subtype +=> 'related', boundary => 'boundary-test-1', type => 'multipart/related'}) > 0) { $sender->SendFile( {description => 'html body', ctype => 'text/html; charset=us-ascii', encoding => '7bit', disposition => 'NONE', file => 'test.html' }); $sender->SendFile( {description => 'ed\'s gif', ctype => 'image/gif', encoding => 'base64', disposition => "inline; filename=\"apache_pb.gif\";\r\nConten +t-ID: <ed1>", file => 'apache_pb.gif' }); $sender->Close() or die "Close failed! $Mail::Sender::Error\n"; } else { die "Cannot send mail: $Mail::Sender::Error\n"; } __END__ In the HTML you'll have this : ... <IMG src="cid:ed1"> ...
