NAME

Mail::Send - Simple electronic mail interface

CONTENTS

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 "couldnt 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-><B>newB>(PAIRS) A list of header fields (provided as key-value PAIRS) can be used to initialize the object.

    Header fields

$obj-><B>addB>(FIELDNAME, VALUES) Add values to the list of defined values for the FIELDNAME.
$obj-><B>bccB>(VALUES)
$obj-><B>ccB>(VALUES)
$obj-><B>deleteB>(FIELDNAME)
$obj-><B>setB>(FIELDNAME, VALUES) VALUES will replace the old values for the FIELDNAME. Returned is the LIST of values after modification.
$obj-><B>subjectB>(VALUES)
$obj-><B>toB>(VALUES)

    Sending

$obj-><B>openB>(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.
