You can use any of them or Catalyst::Helper::Model::Email. The plugin is no
The most simple way is not the best. The best way is to send the messages in
a job queue and let the worker module to send the message immediately or
whenever the mail server is free.
If you send the message directly from your application, in that moment the
server might not be free and the user would need to wait too much until the
message is sent, or the mail server might give a timeout and in that case
the message is lost because the application doesn't send it again when the
mail server is free.
