#!D:\Perl\bin  -w


# if you change your mail server, you may need to change the From:
# address below.

# my $server = 'mail.aa.com';
my $server = 'exchange.aa.com:25';
my $this_machine = 'sottnex24';
my ($to, $subject, $file_path, $file, $body);

use Mail::Sendmail;

if ($server) {
    $mail{Smtp} = $server;
}


# parse parameters

if ( @ARGV == 3 )
{
      ($to, $subject, $body) = @ARGV;
}
elsif ( @ARGV == 5 )
{
      ($to, $subject, $file_path, $file, $body) = @ARGV;
}
elsif (@ARGV < 3)
{
      print "Usage: to | subject [file_path | file ] | body\n";
      exit;
}


$mail{From} = 'Nexus Intel Server <+DW_team@aa.com>';
$mail{To}   = $to;
$mail{Subject} = $subject;
$mail{Message} .= "$body \n
Sent from $this_machine \n
At: " . Mail::Sendmail::time_to_date() . "\n";

# Go send it

if (sendmail %mail) {
    # print "content of \$Mail::Sendmail::log:\n$Mail::Sendmail::log\n";
    if ($Mail::Sendmail::error)
      {
       print "content of \$Mail::Sendmail::error:\n$Mail::Sendmail::error\n";
      }
}

{
    print "\n!Error sending mail:\n$Mail::Sendmail::error\n";

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!";
}
