Hi all,

Pls provide a solution to this question:

I would like to browse a file from my machine and send this file to the mail id.( Body content will go to one email id and attachment(browsing file) will go to another mail id.) How can i do this?

Code for html:
<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<title>New Page 1</title>
</head>

<body>
<FORM name="xyz" method ="post" action="/cgi/fv/stry.cgi">
<input type="file" name="file" value="browse">
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="submit">
</form>
</body>

</html>


and code for cgi:
#!/usr/bin/perl
use Mail::Sender;
use CGI;
print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
$smtp = "world.com";
$query = new CGI;
$fi_le = $query->param('file');
$from = "xyz\@hotmail.com";
$to = "trojen\@yahoo.com";
$subject = "test mail";
$body =<<END_OF_MAIL;
Hi, This is a Test Mail.
Regards,
XYZ.
END_OF_MAIL

$sender = new Mail::Sender {};
$sender->Open({ smtp => $smtp, from => $from, to =>$to, subject => $subject, file => $fi_le, headers => "MIME-Version: 1.0\r\nContent-type: text/plain\r\nContent-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit" }) or return 0;
$sender->Send($body);
$sender->Close();
print "Sent!";

Please modify my cgi code.

Note:

Aim is to separate the body part and attachment file and send it separately.

Waiting for the answer.
More points will be awarded.
Thanks

can you verify you have MIME::Lite installed on your webserver to handle sending the attachment?

well, yes it can be done, it is really outside my expertise to support you on this because I am not familiar with mime on that basic a level.

you have to 1. print the proper mime headers, and 2. encode the data in mime format.

I know maneshr knows how, and he has a script that works...

since he is back in the perl ta, perhaps he will help you if you ask.

in the mean time, I will see if I can locate that script...tomorow.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
