  • Hmm. Sounds familiar [perl.org]. =)

    MIME::Lite for me, although I most of my code has Mail::Sendmail. The latter's quick'n'easy. The former is nicely flexible without being complicated.

  • MIME::Lite - provides the nutrition that I need without the extra calories
  • Hear, hear to Odud.

    I use it because I need to send a lot of attachments.

  • Why? Because I inherited some code from a former co-worker who used MIME::Lite heavily. Does everything I need so saw no need to use anything else.
  • I like Mail::Send from Mail::Tools [cpan.org] because I don't have any trouble remembering the package name, its interface is really clear, and its use of Mail::Mailer makes it easy to send the mail with sendmail, qmail or Net::SMTP.
  • I use Mail::Sender. Probably, because it showed up on top of a search.cpan.org query once; plus, it sends emails.
  • Mail::Sender because I was looking for the easiest way to make a command line utility to send email with attachments. The only caveat is you need to connect to an SMTP server and can't use sendmail.
  • When I needed her, she was there for me and she's never let me down.
