sending chinese character emails via Net::SMTP using Mime-tools - PERL Modules

Howdi, I want to send chinese character emails via Net::SMTP perl. Is the most reliable format MIME encoding? If so, and I have a stream of characters (lets say utf-8), do I just Mime encode them quoted printable and let the client mail application interpret? Anyone been through this process? Thanks, --jim...

    Howdi,

    While I don't actually have an answer, amazingly enough I'm interested
    in a similar problem, including how I can easily _de_code mails that may
    contain UTF8 data.

    Having a look on the web...
    [url]http://www.mhonarc.org/[/url] - deals with mail and seems to know about UTF8
    [url]http://www.perldiscuss.com/article.php?id=2389&group=perl.unicode[/url]
    [url]http://search.cpan.org/~eryq/MIME-tools-5.411a/lib/MIME/Tools.pm[/url]

    might be of some interest

    I'd suspect that a robust way of sending UTF8 content is to use a
    content transfer encoding of base64 and a content type of 'text/plain;
    cht=utf-8' but I can't find any references to that online so it may
    not be correct. But if anyone here know I'd certainly be interested in
    finding the correct way.
