SYNOPSIS ^

 my $sender = Mail::Transport::Exim->new(...);

Mail::Transport::Exim->new(OPTIONS)

If you have Exim installed in a non-standard location, you will need to specify the path, using new(proxy).

DIAGNOSTICS ^

Error: Errors when closing Exim mailer $program: $!

The Exim mail transfer agent did start, but was not able to handle the message correctly.

Warning: Message has no destination

It was not possible to figure-out where the message is intended to go to.

Error: Package $package does not implement $method.

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.

Warning: Resent group does not specify a destination

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 Resent-To, Resent-Cc, and Resent-Bcc.

The To, Cc, and 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.
