  • You (and all the other contributors) did a great job to make a single family of modules to solve almost all date/time related issues.

    Now if someone will do the same for emailing, please!

        Didn't it die a year ago?
        • Not that I am aware of. One of the devs still posts not to use MIME::Lite (and he is the maintainer of it) as the Email modules are better.
        • It's not dead, but it never saw the same kind of mass enthusiasm and initial flood of work that the DateTime project did. However, I do use the Email::* modules all the time for sending emails, and they work great. I get the impression that if you wanted to do something like write a mail client, you'd have your work cut out for you.

          As sigzero mentioned, it's still active, and Ric Signes (RJBS on CPAN) is still working on the project. I'm sure he'd appreciate some help.
