Mail::Transport::Sendmail - transmit messages using external Sendmail program
Mail::Transport::Sendmail is a Mail::Transport::Send is a Mail::Transport is a Mail::Reporter
my $sender = Mail::Transport::Sendmail->new(...); $sender->send($message);
Implements mail transport using the external
'Sendmail' program. When instantiated, the mailer will look for the binary in specific system directories, and the first version found is taken.
Some people use Postfix as MTA. Postfix can be installed as replacement for Sendmail: is provides a program with the same name and options. So, this module supports postfix as well.
-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> sendmail_options  timeout Mail::Transport 120 trace Mail::Reporter 'WARNINGS' username Mail::Transport undef via Mail::Transport 'sendmail'
Add to the command-line of the started sendmail MTU a list of separate words. So say
[ '-f', $file ] and not
[ "-f $file" ] , because the latter will be taken by sendmail as one word only.
-Option --Default sendmail_options undef
The was no problem starting the sendmail mail transfer agent, but for some specific reason the message could not be handled correctly.
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.
