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

NAME
       Mail::Send - Simple electronic mail interface

SYNOPSIS
	 require Mail::Send;

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

	 $msg->to('user@host');
	 $msg->to('user@host', 'user2@example.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
	     or die "couldn't send whole message: $!\n";

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.
