NAME

Mail::Send - Simple electronic mail interface

SYNOPSIS

require Mail::Send;

$msg = Mail::Send->new; $msg = Mail::Send->new(Subject => 'example', To => 'timbo');

$msg->to('[email protected]'); $msg->to('[email protected]', '[email protected]'); $msg->subject('example subject'); $msg->cc('[email protected]'); $msg->bcc('[email protected]');

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

# Launch mailer and set headers. The filehandle returned # by open() is an instance of the Mail::Mailer class. # Arguments to the open() method are passed to the Mail::Mailer # constructor.

$fh = $msg->open; # some default mailer $fh = $msg->open('sendmail'); # explicit print $fh "Body of message"; $fh->close # complete the message and send it or die "couldn't send whole message: $!\n";

DESCRIPTION

Mail::Send creates e-mail messages without using the Mail::Header knowledge, which means that all escaping and folding must be done by you! Simplicity has its price.

When you have time, take a look at Mail::Transport

METHODS

Constructors

Mail
:Send->new(PAIRS):A list of header fields (provided as key-value PAIRS) can be used to initialize the object.:

Header fields

$obj->add(FIELDNAME, VALUES)
Add values to the list of defined values for the FIELDNAME.:

:$obj->bcc(VALUES)

:$obj->cc(VALUES)

:$obj->delete(FIELDNAME)

$obj->set(FIELDNAME, VALUES)
VALUES will replace the old values for the FIELDNAME. Returned is the LIST of values after modification.:

:$obj->subject(VALUES)

:$obj->to(VALUES)

Sending

$obj->open(OPTIONS)
The OPTIONS are used to initiate a mailer object via Mail::Mailer::new(). Then Mail::Mailer::open() is called with the knowledge collected in this Mail::Send object.:
