I use Mail::Sender pretty extensively. Here's a code snippet to get you started for sending an email with an attachment. (We let the user's email client determine the helper application to execute based on the file extension of the filename we attach to the message.)

Mail::Sender lets you customize the MIME stuff, but for simple single files you don't need to do that.

sub send_email { my $sender = new Mail::Sender({ from => $from_address, }); $sender->OpenMultipart({ to => $to_email, subject => $subject, }); $sender->Body; $sender->SendLine( $msg_body ); $sender->SendFile({ description => 'Raw Data File', encoding => '7BIT', file => $tempfile, }); $sender->Close; }

I really like this module. You should seriously consider installing it if you find that you are doing a lot with emailing attachments. It has saved me tons of time.

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.
