The perldoc for mail::send shows that you can set headers for email being sent using the module. Although their are methods to set the To: Subject: and Cc: fields...

$msg->to('user@host'); $msg->subject('example subject'); $msg->cc('user@host');

There doesnt seem to be any a method for setting the From: field save using the $msg->set(); method, which has a description as:

$msg->set($header, @values); $msg->add($header, @values); $msg->delete($header);

I tried the following:


I also tried "From: ", "From:" and "Its Me <helpful\>" but none gave any different results. I'm thinking that my syntax is wonky somewhere along the way. Can someone point out the correct method?

thanks -c

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
