Mail::Transport::Send - send a message
Mail::Transport::Send is a Mail::Transport is a Mail::Reporter Mail::Transport::Send is extended by Mail::Transport::Exim Mail::Transport::Mailx Mail::Transport::Qmail Mail::Transport::SMTP Mail::Transport::Sendmail
my $message = Mail::Message->new(...); # Some extensions implement sending: $message->send; $message->send(via => 'sendmail'); my $sender = Mail::Transport::SMTP->new(...); $sender->send($message);
Send a message to the destinations as specified in the header. The
Mail::Transport::Send module is capable of autodetecting which of the following modules work on your system; you may simply call
via options to get a message transported.
Use sendmail to process and deliver the mail. This requires the
sendmail program to be installed on your system. Whether this is an original sendmail, or a replacement from Postfix does matter.
exim to distribute the message.
qmail-inject to distribute the message.
In this case, Perl is handling mail transport on its own. This is less desired but more portable than sending with sendmail or qmail. The advantage is that this sender is environment independent, and easier to configure. However, there is no daemon involved which means that your program will wait until the message is delivered, and the message is lost when your program is interrupted during delivery (which may take hours to complete).
Use the external
-Option --Defined in --Default executable Mail::Transport undef hostname Mail::Transport 'localhost' interval Mail::Transport 30 log Mail::Reporter 'WARNINGS' password Mail::Transport undef port Mail::Transport undef proxy Mail::Transport undef retry Mail::Transport <false> timeout Mail::Transport 120 trace Mail::Reporter 'WARNINGS' username Mail::Transport undef via Mail::Transport 'sendmail'
Determine the destination for this message. If a valid ADDRESS is defined, this is used to overrule the addresses within the message. If the ADDRESS is
undef it is ignored.
If no ADDRESS is specified, the message is scanned for resent groups (see Mail::Message::Head::Complete::resentGroups()). The addresses found in the first (is latest added) group are used. If no resent groups are found, the normal
Bcc lines are taken.
Print the content of the MESSAGE to the FILEHANDLE.
-Option --Default body_only <false> undisclosed <false>
Transmit the MESSAGE, which may be anything what can be coerced into a Mail::Message, so including Mail::Internet and MIME::Entity messages. It returns true when the transmission was successfully completed.
-Option --Default interval new(interval) retry new(retry) to undef
Try to send the message. This will return true if successful, and false in case some problems where detected. The
$? contains the exit status of the command which was started.
It was not possible to figure-out where the message is intended to go to.
Fatal error: the specific package (or one of its superclasses) does not implement this method where it should. This message means that some other related classes do implement this method however the class at hand does not. Probably you should investigate this and probably inform the author of the package.
The message which is sent is the result of a bounce (for instance created with Mail::Message::bounce()), and therefore starts with a
Received header field. With the
bounce, the new destination(s) of the message are given, which should be included as
Bcc header information is only used if no
Received was found. That seems to be the best explanation of the RFC.
As alternative, you may also specify the
to option to some of the senders (for instance Mail::Transport::SMTP::send(to) to overrule any information found in the message itself about the destination.
The Mail::Transport object of the specified type can not send messages, but only receive message.
