    # sending email is simple
    
    use Email::Sender::Server::Client 'mail';

        subject => '...',
        body    => '...',
    );
    
    my ($client) = mail @message;
    
    if ($client->error_count) {
        
        die $client->errors_to_string;
        
    }
    
    my ($client, $msg_id) = mail @message;
    
    unless ($msg_id) {
        
        die $client->errors_to_string;
        
    }

or using an object-oriented approach ....

    use Email::Sender::Server::Client;
    
    my $client = Email::Sender::Server::Client->new;
    
    my @message = (to => '...', subject => '...', body => '...');
    
    my $msg_id = $client->send(@message);
    
    if ($client->error_count) {
        
        print $client->errors_to_string;
        
    }

altering or using a non-sendmail transport ...

    use Email::Sender::Server::Client;
    
    my $client = Email::Sender::Server::Client->new;
    
    my @message = (to => '...', subject => '...', body => '...');
    
    push @message, 'transport' => {
    
        # key is the Email::Sender transport driver,
        # value is the transport driver's arguments
        
        STMP => {
            
            host => '...',
            port => '...',
            
        }
    
    };
    
    my ($msg_id) = $client->send(@message);
    
    unless ($msg_id) {
        
        print $client->errors_to_string;
        
    }

Please see the Email::Sender::Server::Message class for attributes that can be used as arguments to the mail() and send() methods.

Currently all ESS classes operate out of the current-working-directory which can be sub-optimal, especially when used in other classes that can be utilized by various different scripts.

The ESS_DATA environment variable can be set to change the path of the ess_data (data) directory utilized by the ess program, otherwise you may use the path parameter.

By default, a "ess_data" folder is created for you automatically in the current directory however when changing the path to the ess_data directory, please note that such a change will supercede the defaults and data will be stored at the path you've specified. For continuity, try to use absolute paths only!!!

    use Email::Sender::Server::Client 'mail';
    
    # if you need to change the ess data directory
    
    push @message, path => '/path/to/ess/parent/folder' ;
    
    my ($client) = mail @message;

DESCRIPTION ^

Email::Sender::Server::Client provides an interface to the ESS non-blocking email delivery system which queues emails for later delivery. This class is a simple wrapper around the Email::Sender::Server::Manager class, the manager is responsible for queuing email messages and delegating tasks to the worker processes. Note, All messages are validated by Email::Sender::Server::Message.

EXPORTS ^

mail

The mail method is designed to provide a simple single method for sending emails to the server. It accepts valid attributes accepted by Email::Sender::Server::Message. It returns a list of two elements, a client object and the filepath of the queued message if the operation was successful.

    use Email::Sender::Server::Client 'mail';
    
    my @message = (
        to      => '...',
        subject => '...',
        body    => '...',
    );
    
    my ($client, $msg_id) = mail @message;
    
    unless ($msg_id) {
        
        die $client->errors_to_string;
        
    }

METHODS ^

send

The send method is designed to provide an object-oriented approach for sending emails to the server. It accepts all valid attributes accepted by Email::Sender::Server::Message. It returns a the filepath of the queued message if the operation was successful.

    use Email::Sender::Server::Client;
    
    my $client = Email::Sender::Server::Client->new;
    
    my @message = (to => '...', subject => '...', body => '...');
    
    my $msg_id = $client->send(@message);
    
    if ($client->error_count) {
        
        print $client->errors_to_string;
        
    }
