in thread Using Net::SMTP to send pdf attachment

Thank you thanos1983.

This is what I have tried:

use strict; use Net::SMTP; use MIME::Base64; my $smtphost = 'some_smtp_host'; my $username = 'some_username'; my $password = 'some_password'; my $emailto = 'to@hello.com'; my $emailfrom = 'from@hello.com'; my $subject = 'Hello world'; my $message = 'Test message'; sub date_r { my ($monthday, $mon, $yr, $ time, $hour, $str); my (@lt) = (); @lt = localtime(); $monthday = $lt[3]; $mon = $lt[4]+1; $yr = $lt[5] + 1900; $hour = $lt[2]; $time = sprintf("%02d:%02d:%02d", $hour, $lt[1], $lt[0]); $str = $mon . '/' .$monthday . '/' . $yr . ' ' . $time; return $str; } my $smtp = Net::SMTP->new($smtphost, Debug => 1, Timeout => 5); $smtp->datasend("AUTH LOGIN\n"); $smtp->datasend(encode_base64($username)); $smtp->datasend(encode_base64($password)); $smtp->mail($emailfrom); $smtp->to($emailto); $smtp->data(); my $boundary = 'frontier'; my $attachBinaryFile = 'helloworld.pdf'; $smtp->datasend("MIME-Version: 1.0\n"); $smtp->datasend("Content-type: multipart/mixed;\n\tboundary=\"$boundar +y\"\n"); $smtp->datasend("--$boundary\n"); $smtp->datasend("Content-type: text/plain;\n"); $smtp->datasend("\nSome plain text here in the body of the email\n"); $smtp->datasend("\n"); $smtp->datasend("--$boundary\n"); $smtp->datasend("Content-Type: application/pdf; charset=utf-8; name=\" +$attachBinaryFile\"\n"); $smtp->datasend("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=\"$attachBi +naryFile\"\n"); $smtp->datasend("Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit\n"); my $pdfbody = do { local $/; open my $fh ,'<', "/path/helloworld.pdf" or die "pdfread: $!"; <>; }; $smtp->datasend("\n"); $smtp->datasend("$pdfbody\n"); $smtp->datasend("--$boundary\n"); $smtp->dataend(); $smtp->quit;

I do get the email message and the pdf attachment in the email. But I am not able to open the pdf attachment - some sort of data corruption.

Please help.
