yeah, that rpm -qa showed it, and the test I did like this and it worked 

#!/usr/bin/perl -w
use Mail::Sender;
$sender = new Mail::Sender
{smtp => 'my.mail.server', from => 'me at my.domain'};
$sender->MailFile({to => 'me at my.domain',
subject => 'Here is the file',
msg => "I'm sending you the list you wanted.",
file => 'filename.txt'});

Thanks alot, I did this for my supervisor and just wanted to verify it 
before he used it...
