1006RE: multipart email using $Server->Mail
- Feb 5, 2003Well, after trying some venues, I've got the results I was looking for using
MIME::Lite as you suggested. I tried using the "as_string" method to
transfer it to Body in $Server->Mail with no success, I tried various header
configurations but, it always ended as plain text at the receiver. I'll
probaly try again in the future. I tested this with several mail-clients and
the result was 100% satisfactory in all of them, I know this doesn't mean
that it'll work in every single client but I'm covered for the most popular
ones. The solution is extremely simple and is detailed in the MIME::Lite
$MailBodyHTML = $MAIL->create_HTML_mail(my_variables); # this is a
for-the-purpose module I wrote
$MailBodyText = $MAIL->create_Text_mail(my_variables);
my $Subject = "Any appropriate subject line";
MIME::Lite->send('smtp', "smtp.mailserver"); # I use a SMTP server; it
obviuously works the same using the default sendmail
my $message = MIME::Lite->new (
From => 'sender@...',
To => 'receiver@...',
Subject => $Subject,
Type => 'multipart/alternative',
$message->attach( Type => 'TEXT',
Data => $MailBodyText,
$message->attach( Type =>'text/html',
Data => $MailBodyHTML,
And that's it. Thanks for your help !

that you could use the MIME::Lite API, and insert the right content
into $Server->Mail() usage, or you could use MIME::Lite->send()
to send the message directly.
You might also try the MIME::Lite->body_as_string() API and add that
to the Body passed to $Server->Mail, but you might also have to add
some special headers as well.
Whatever your solution, if you could post what you come up with,
that would be educational for all.
