Recently I had the need to send someone multiple 1-2 MB files. Email was the best option, for reasons that are not very interesting, and outside the scope of this article.

I naturally turned to my favorite language, Ruby.  I did a little research into the various gems and their configuration, and offer this simple example (source code below) in the hope that it will save you a little time if you have the same need.

I’ve tried to trim out anything not relating to the actual sending of the mail so that you can more easily understand it and adapt it for your use.
