Mail::Sender problem

Hi there,

I'm trying to create an html mail with embedded pictures in it. I run perl
on Windows and Red Hat but I cannot get your module (Mail::Sender) to work.
I'm just trying to run the examples. Below this message you'll find the perl
example I'm using and the header of the e-mail. What am I doing wrong?

Merijn Boom

Perl code:

use strict;

use Mail::Sender;

my $recipients = 'm*****@con-x-com.com';

eval {

(new Mail::Sender)


to => 'mailto',

FROM => 'mailfrom',

subject => 'Alternatives with images',

# debug => 'c:\temp\zkMailFlow.log',

multipart => 'related',

smtp => '',


->Part({ctype => 'multipart/alternative'})

->Part({ ctype => 'text/plain', disposition
=> 'NONE', msg => 'A long mail message.'})

->Part({ctype => 'text/html', disposition =>
'NONE', msg => '<html><body><h1>A long</h1><p align=center>mail message.<img



description => 'ed\'s GIF',

ctype => 'image/GIF',

encoding => 'base64',

disposition => "inline;
filename=\"apache_pb.gif\";\r\nContent-ID: <img1>",

file => 'apache_pb.gif'



} or print "Error sending mail: $Mail::Sender::Error\n";

My Header:

To: *

From: *

Subject: Alternatives with images
