Perl Mime::Lite question. Help please?

I’m having a problem with Perl using the Mime::Lite module and I was hoping someone here could help me out.

I’m trying to send a multipart MIME message (text and HTML). The problem that I am running into is in trying to send out a “real name” along with the email address. In other email programs, you can send “Zev Steinhardt <>” as the send address. However, when doing this with Mime::Lite, I get

SMTP MAIL command failed:
5.5.4 Bad Address

If I try to send it with just the email address ( it works. But I have to send out a “real name” with it.

Does anyone have any ideas that could help?

Thanks in advance,

Zev Steinhardt

You might have better luck trying your question here. Those doodz know everything.

Try using ‘“Name, Full” <>’ in the To: string. Note the double quotes around the full name.
