You are right, I forgot to mention that there was Net::SMTP also. I actually used Net::SMTP, but had problems with it. It might be because I was on a Win32 machine? I don't know. All I know was that it would not send email the way Ultimail.pm does. I also tried their example of running an SMTP server, but it did not work either :-)

I decided that I would write my own, then, this is as simple as that. Ultimail.pm is very simple (a lot simpler than Net::SMTP), and does the job on Win32 machines (I did not test it on *nix platforms, but it should be pretty slick there also).
