This is the code snippet that you would like to use in your script, using your own variables



use MIME::Lite;
 
#This indicates that we want to use smtp
MIME::Lite->send('smtp', $ipaddress, Timeout=>60, Port=>2525) or abort "failed"; 
 
send_mime_message($username,{Subject => 'hello there', Type => 'application/octet-stream', Path =>"/tmp/binary.$$", Disposition => 'attachment'});
 
#Subroutines to send the messages with the attachment
sub send_mime_message
{
    my $username=shift;
    #The parts to construct, anonymous arrays of anonymous hash. parts[0] always contain header info,
    #plus mail data if not sending multipart mail
    my $parts = [@_];
    my $header = ${$parts}[0];
 
    defined(${$header}{'From'}) || (${$header}{'From'} = "abc\@xyz.com");
    defined(${$header}{'To'}) || (${$header}{'To'} = "cd\@xyz.com");
    defined(${$header}{'Subject'}) || (${$header}{'Subject'} = "message here");
 
    my $msg = MIME::Lite->new( %{$header});
 
    abort "no object " if !defined($msg);
    $msg->send() || fail "Couldn't send message!";
}
