( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Dear Monks, I am trying to attach a Microsoft Word Document to an email message using the module net::smtp. I would use Mime::lite, unfortunately, our web server will not install it. In any case, the program works by attaching the correct file name, except it sends a blank file. How do I attach the file to the document so the user can open or save the document on his / her computer?

As always thanks!

use Net::SMTP;
$host = "";
$username = "test";
$password = "test123";
$filename = "S:/Documents/test.doc";
$name = "test.doc";
$email = "";

# Create a new SMTP object
$smtp = Net::SMTP->new($host);
$smtp->auth ( $username, $password ) or die "Could not authenticate $!";

$smtp->datasend("From: test\\n");
$smtp->datasend("To: $email\n");
$smtp->datasend("Subject: Test Message\n");
$smtp->datasend("MIME-Version: 1.0\n");
$smtp->datasend("Content-Disposition: attachment; file= \"$filename\"\n");
$smtp->datasend("Content-Type: application/msword; name= \"$name\"\n");
