[Catalyst] What's the recommended EMAIL portion of the Catalyst framework, these days?

We've used Catalyst::View::Email since forever and I recommend it.
I would ignore Catalyst::Plugin::Email.

C::V::Email uses Email::Sender::Simple under the hood for everything,
so you should be a bit familiar with its API.

It previously used Email::Send (which is now deprecated in favor to
Email::Sender), so make sure you don't confuse the two.

Enjoy :)
