Revision history for Perl extension Mail::Sender.

I am sorry I did not keep track of the changes :-(

Version 0.4 :
 I added several methods for most common tasks.
  MailMsg : Send a string as a mail by single call
  MailFile : The same plus attached files
  SendFile : Insert a file as a part of a multipart message
  Send(Line)Enc : Automatic encoding (Base64,Quoted-Printable)

Version 0.5 :
 Cancel : cancel an Opened message.
 $sender->{'error'} : last error for this object.
 @Errors : a list of error messages.
 Several minor fixes.

Version 0.6 :
 fixed problems with Base64 encoding. Files are now read, encoded and
 sent in parts instead of whole at once. You may call SendEnc several
 times in one part now.


Version 0.6.6 : Added support for CC: and BCC:.

Version 0.6.9b : 7/19/1999 - BETA
 Open(), MailMsg and MailFile accept ctype, and encoding parameters.

 You have more options in Part() and Body(). It's possible to send HTML
 mails with inlined images easily now.

 Error -5 (Unspecified communication error) now includes the actual
 error returned by the mail server.

 Some more examples in the docs.

 Mail::Sender now tries to guess the content type for attached files.

 You may now create not only multipart/mixed but also multipart/related
 or other messages.

  Don't tell me I'm stuuupid, I know it. Ever tried to send en email

Version 0.7.03 - 14/1/19100
  Don't tell me I'm stuuupid, I know it. As Jan Starzynski <>

  under Unix. Oh well :-(

Version 0.7.04 - 8/1/19100

 Added fake_from, fake_to and fake_cc options to

 text you like, doesn't need to look like an address.
