Sending email from Perl: Mail::Sendmail · 19 December 2008, 19:33

I always forget which mail-related modules on CPAN are the easiest and most flexible for sending mail from a perl program. Several times now I have gone to CPAN, re-found Mail::Mailer, been enticed by it’s features, downloaded/installed it, and then had troubles getting it to work in ‘smtp’ mode.

I then download Mail::Sendmail and am up and running in minutes. The only feature Mail::Sendmail does not support that would make it the best (in my opinion) of the perl mail modules is SMTP AUTH.
