Re: Sendmail with html attachment and html body

You might try something like this as an example:


use Net::SMTP;
use MIME::Lite;
use Getopt::Long;

### Adjust sender, recipient and your SMTP mailhost
my $from_address = ""$local_user"."\";
my $to_address = "$email_alias";
my $mail_host = 'localhost';

### Adjust subject and body message
my $subject = 'A message with 1 part ...';
my $message_body = "Here's the attachment file(s) you wanted";

### Adjust the filenames
my $my_file_txt = $rptFile;
my $your_file_txt = $rptFile;
my $message_type = 'text/html';

'to_address=s' => \$to_address,
'subject=s' => \$subject,
'body=s' => \$message_body,
'my_file_txt=s' => \$my_file_txt,
'your_file_txt=s' => \$your_file_txt,
'type=s' => \$message_type,

### Create the multipart container
$msg = MIME::Lite->new (
From => $from_address,
To => $to_address,
Subject => $subject,
Type =>'multipart/mixed'
) or die "Error creating multipart container: $!\n";

### Add the text message part
$msg->attach (
Type => 'TEXT',
Data => $message_body
) or die "Error adding the text message part: $!\n";

### Add the TXT file
$msg->attach (
Type => $message_type,
Path => $my_file_txt,
Filename => $your_file_txt,
Disposition => 'attachment'
) or die "Error adding $my_file_txt: $!\n";

### Send the Message
MIME::Lite->send('smtp', $mail_host, Timeout=>60);
