NAME ^

POEST::Server::Events - Document all the standard events.

ABSTRACT ^

Comprehensive documentation on all the standard events. These are the basic events that a standard SMTP server should implement.

DESCRIPTION ^

Lots of events are created by the poest server. We should probably write them down for someone, perhaps even you!

SMTP Events

SMTP events are only self explainitory to people who understand SMTP commands. Of course, RFC 2821 can help with that, but there should be a quick explination here.

HELO

ARG0 is the host passed by the client, if there is one.

QUIT

The client has decided to close the connection. A handler for this method should set $heap->{shutdown} to a true value. This will tell the server to shutdown the connection.

Special SMTP Events

send_banner

This event is called as soon as a connection is established. An SMTP server sends a banner to tell the client who it is, that's what we do here.

POEST::Plugin::Accept Events

POEST::Plugin::Queue Events

POEST::Plugin::Deliver Events
