Email::Sender::Transport::SMTPS - Email::Sender joins Net::SMTPS


        use Email::Sender::Simple qw(sendmail);
        use Email::Sender::Transport::SMTPS;
        use Try::Tiny;

        my $transport = Email::Sender::Transport::SMTPS->new(
            host => '',
            ssl  => 'starttls',
            sasl_username => '',
            sasl_password => 'mypassword',
        debug => 0, # or 1

        # my $message = Mail::Message->read($rfc822)
        #         || Email::Simple->new($rfc822)
        #         || Mail::Internet->new([split /\n/, $rfc822])
        #         || ...
        #         || $rfc822;
        # read L<Email::Abstract> for more details

        use Email::Simple::Creator; # or other Email::
        my $message = Email::Simple->create(
            header => [
                From    => '',
                To      => '',
                Subject => 'Subject title',
            body => 'Content.',

        try {
            sendmail($message, { transport => $transport });
        } catch {
            die "Error sending email: $_";


DEPRECATED. Please use Email::Sender::Transport::SMTP instead.

This transport is used to send email over SMTP, either with or without secure sockets (SSL/TLS). it uses the great Net::SMTPS.


The following attributes may be passed to the constructor:

host: the name of the host to connect to; defaults to localhost
ssl: 'ssl' / 'starttls' / undef, if true, passed to Net::SMTPS doSSL.
port: port to connect to; defaults to 25 for non-SSL, 465 for 'ssl' and 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 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: enable debug info for Net::SMTPS


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