Email::Sender - a library for sending email


version 1.300035


  my $message = Email::MIME->create( ... );
  # produce an Email::Abstract compatible message object,
  # e.g. produced by Email::Simple, Email::MIME, Email::Stuff
  use Email::Sender::Simple qw(sendmail);
  use Email::Sender::Transport::SMTP qw();
  use Try::Tiny;
  try {
        transport => Email::Sender::Transport::SMTP->new({
            host => $SMTP_HOSTNAME,
            port => $SMTP_PORT,
  } catch {
      warn "sending failed: $_";


Email::Sender replaces the old and sometimes problematic Email::Send library, which did a decent job at handling very simple email sending tasks, but was not suitable for serious use, for a variety of reasons.

Most users will be able to use Email::Sender::Simple to send mail. Users with more specific needs should look at the available Email::Sender::Transport classes.

Documentation may be found in Email::Sender::Manual, and new users should start with Email::Sender::Manual::QuickStart.


Email::Sender itself is a Moo role. Any class that implements Email::Sender is required to provide a method called "send". This method should accept any input that can be understood by Email::Abstract, followed by a hashref containing "to" and "from" arguments to be used as the envelope. The method should return an Email::Sender::Success object on success or throw an Email::Sender::Failure on failure.
