I am using the command line interface to run my mailing perl script from my destop(like 'perl myscript.pl'). Surprisingly if I send an attachment using the outlook express to my own address the clip sign is there, but if I use the perl script from my commandline I can't see the attchment sign in the received mail. My full code is as follows: use strict; use CGI qw/:standard/; use CGI::Carp qw/fatalsToBrowser/; use MIME::Lite::HTML; use MIME::Lite; my $mailHTML = new MIME::Lite::HTML From => "dbcoordinator\@cs.org.au", To => "$receiver", Subject => "Credit details attached"; my $MIMEmail = $mailHTML->parse("file://C|/test/coverpage/coverexec.htm"); $MIMEmail->attach( Type => 'application/msword', Path =>'Sol.doc' , Filename => 'Sol.doc' , Disposition => 'attachment' ); $MIMEmail->send_by_smtp('smtp.gforce.co.au'); print header,"Mail envoye (","Mail sent to" , " to ", "$receiver",")<<<<<<<<\n\n\n"; print "You mailing job has been finished by me!! Thanks!!"; You can try the above code from your windows commandline. Anyway thank you very much guys. I really appreciate your time and help.

    Yes and no.

    The MIME::Lite module allows you to send attachments,
    which, if it's just one, should show up fine in any email client.

    MIME::Lite::HTML however sends the HTML file as an inline HTML -
    no attachment.

    So, without being there to see first hand what's going
    on, you could be right -or- I could have a point about what I just
    said - having spent a few hours trying to get either to do what I
    wanted them to do and using two clients other than Outlook.

    Have a go at the code I posted and let me know your results - okay?
    I'm curious to see what the outcome is.

    Hi Guys

    Thanks for all your suggestions. I checked the attachment tick in the
    view -->columns but it was there already. The checked from my desktop by
    sent mails to my own address/Outlook. I am using the command line interface
    to run my mailing perl script from my destop(like 'perl myscript.pl').
    Surprisingly if I send an attachment using the outlook express to my own
    address the clip sign is there, but if I use the perl script from my
    commandline I can't see the attchment sign in the received mail. My full
    code is as follows:

    use strict;
    use CGI qw/:standard/;
    use CGI::Carp qw/fatalsToBrowser/;
    use MIME::Lite::HTML;
    use MIME::Lite;

    my $mailHTML = new MIME::Lite::HTML
    From => "dbcoordinator\cs.org.au",
    To => "$receiver",
    Subject => "Credit details attached";

    my $MIMEmail = $mailHTML->p("file://C|/test/coverpage/coverexec.htm");
    $MIMEmail->attach(
    Type => 'application/msword',
    Path =>'Sol.doc' ,
    Filename => 'Sol.doc' ,
    Disposition => 'attachment'

    );
    $MIMEmail->send_by_smtp('smtp.gforce.co.au');
    print header,"Mail envoye (","Mail sent to" , " to ",
    "$receiver",")<<<<<<<<\n\n\n";

    print "You mailing job has been finished by me!! Thanks!!";

    You can try the above code from your windows commandline. Anyway thank you
    very much guys. I really appreciate your time and help.

    Cheers
    Jo
