NAME

Email::Sender::Transport::SMTP - send email over SMTP

VERSION

version 1.500

DESCRIPTION

This transport is used to send email over SMTP, either with or without secure sockets (SSL/TLS). It is one of the most complex transports available, capable of partial success.

For a potentially more efficient version of this transport, see Email::Sender::Transport::SMTP::Persistent.

PERL VERSION SUPPORT

This module has a long-term perl support period. That means it will not require a version of perl released fewer than five years ago.

Although it may work on older versions of perl, no guarantee is made that the minimum required version will not be increased. The version may be increased for any reason, and there is no promise that patches will be accepted to lower the minimum required perl.

ATTRIBUTES

The following attributes may be passed to the constructor:

hosts: an arrayref of names of the host to try, in order; defaults to a single element array containing localhost

The attribute host may be given, instead, which contains a single hostname.

ssl: if 'starttls', use STARTTLS; if 'ssl' (or 1), connect securely; if 'maybestarttls', use STARTTLS if available; otherwise, no security
ssl_options: passed to Net::SMTP constructor for 'ssl' connections or to starttls for 'starttls' or 'maybestarttls' connections; should contain extra options for IO::Socket::SSL
port: port to connect to; defaults to 25 for non-SSL, 465 for 'ssl', 587 for 'starttls'
timeout: maximum time in secs to wait for server; default is 120
sasl_username: the username to use for auth; optional
sasl_password: the password to use for auth; required if sasl_username is provided
allow_partial_success: if true, will send data even if some recipients were rejected; defaults to false
helo: what to say when saying HELO; no default
localaddr: local address from which to connect
localport: local port from which to connect
debug: if true, put the Net::SMTP object in debug mode

PARTIAL SUCCESS

If allow_partial_success was set when creating the transport, the transport may return Email::Sender::Success::Partial objects. Consult that module's documentation.
