How to send SMIME Email from perl script?

Hi all, can anyone give me some advice on how I can encrypt a generated email, so that it can be decrypted via netscape Communicators SMIME facility? Is this the same as just using PGP, or is it a completely different format altogether?

Thanks.

PGP uses a completely different format.
There is free software available, which can (with some trial-and-error perhaps) create SMIME compliant mails. I think, for example, Eric Young's SSLeay package could be used to do it.

You'll need to take a look at the SMIME specification, and then use SSLeay's pkcs7-commands to create the messages.
