hello, I'm writing to ask about support for "multipart/related" messages within MIME::Tools.  Specifically, RFC2387, which specifies this type of multipart message, states that the Content-type line needs to have a "Type" parameter specifying the content-type of the main part of the message. ex. Content-type: multipart-related; boundary="--1234"; Type="text/html" As far as I can see, there is no way in MIME::Tools to pass this "type" parameter when creating the object:   my $top = MIME::Entity->build(           From            => $from,           To              => $to           Subject         => $subject,           Type            => 'multipart/related',       # need to add: ; type="text/html"   ); It would be nice to be able to pass a parameter like subtype => "text/html", or main_type => "text/html".  Otherwise the generated messages are not RFC-compliant, which causes real world problems (e.g Yahoo Mail doesn't display the message properly). It would be even nicer if MIME::Tools had an automatic check for multipart/related, and added this field on its own, based on the content-type of the first part of the node. I have been able to find a work-around, but it is not particularly nice:   # add the "type" param for multipart/related   my $ct = $top->head->get("Content-type");   $top->head->replace("Content-type", qq{$ct; Type="text/html"}); thanks in advance, and thanks for your wonderful and very useful work!!    roger

Can't you do this? $top->head->mime_attr('content-type.type' => 'text/html'); That seems pretty simple and clean to me. Regards, David.
