Mail::Send(3pm)       User Contributed Perl Documentation      Mail::Send(3pm)



NAME
       Mail::Send - Simple electronic mail interface

INHERITANCE
SYNOPSIS
         require Mail::Send;

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

         $msg->to('user@host');
         $msg->to('user@host', 'user2ATexample.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

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.
