Mailit is a simple to use library to create and send MIME compliant e-mail with attachments and various encodings.
This is a fork of MailFactory and provides a mostly identical API but has been cleaned up, simplified, and made compliant to common Ruby idioms. I would like to thank David Powers for the original MailFactory, it served me well for many years.

This program is free software. You can re-distribute and/or modify this program under the same terms as Ruby itself.
Any Ruby since 1.8.4 should work. Mailit can use the Rack or Mime::Types libraries to determine the mime-type of attachments automatically, but they are optional.
Usage of Mailit::Mail
require 'net/smtp' require 'mailit' mail = Mailit::Mail.new mail.to = 'firstname.lastname@example.org' mail.from = 'email@example.com' mail.subject 'Here are some files for you!' mail.text = 'This is what people with plain text mail readers will see' mail.html = "A little something <b>special</b> for people with HTML readers' mail.attach('/etc/fstab') mail.attach('/home/manveru/.vimrc')
Usage of Mailit::Mailer
Using the mail variable from above example
mailer = Mailit::Mailer.new mailer.send(mail, :server => 'smtp.example.com', :port => 25, :domain => 'example.com', :password => 'foo')
MailFactory has a method_missing that handles getting and setting of arbitrary headers. I went for the less magical # and #= methods, maybe someone can add the MailFactory behaviour.
