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('user@host');
  $msg->to('user@host', 'user2@example.com');
  $msg->subject('example subject');
  $msg->cc('user@host');
  $msg->bcc('someone@else');

  $msg->set($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.
