Sending emails

Is there a gem for sending emails?

I want to automate a process for sending emails containing images. I
have it running in perl using Mime::Lite, and I was hoping that there
was something similar in Ruby.

have a look at ActionMailer:
http://api.rubyonrails.org/classes/ActionMailer/Base.html

look for attachment, this should allow to add images, i guess (didn’t
try it, though)

But surely that is a Rails solution, not a Ruby solution?

actionmailer is a separate gem like activerecord.

I believe that, like activerecord, it can be used independently of
Rails, although I’ve not done that personally.

No reason that ActonMailer is limited to Eails alone. :wink:

However, I’d cut out the middleman, and go for tmail directly.

You might also want to look at MailFactory
