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

Enlightened Monks,

I am planning to develop a mailing script that can handle mid-size recipient lists and would like to choose modules from the Perl Email Project preferably endorsed or at least maintained. Much as I tried to read the documentation, I was unable to clearly map a module to a single task.

If I were to break up the entire cycle into say 4 main tasks:

  1. Creating a multi-part MIME message and Headers
  2. Delivering the mail using SMTP (to SASL Auth-aware relay servers)
  3. Checking for bounces
  4. Extracting the reason why a message was bounced

What modules (preferably endorsed/maintained) should I use of these tasks? Thank you for your attention
