Is there some easy way to get erlang to send emails or should I simply 
use os:cmd/1 and call some appropriate unix command ?
The only thing I found that might do the job (I haven't looked at it in 
depth) is email-1.0 by Joe Armstrong, in the "User 
Contributions" section.

I would like to send emails based on mail urls e.g. :


i.e. urls that contain a mail address and possibly additional 
arguments, it should also be possible to attach additional data to the 
mail in some easy manner.

I'm interested in this as I'm currently implementing CPL (Call 
Processing Language - RFC 3880), for use with YXA (see and it would be nice if I could 
support the CPL mail tag, if it isn't to much work - it's currently a 
non-essential feature.
