Email::Sender::Transport::Sendmail - send mail via sendmail(1)


version 2.601


This library should run on perls released even a long time ago. It should work on any version of perl released in the last five years.

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.


This transport sends mail by piping it to the sendmail command. If the location of the sendmail command is not provided in the constructor (see below) then the library will look for an executable file called sendmail in the path.

To specify the location of sendmail:

  my $sender = Email::Sender::Transport::Sendmail->new({ sendmail => $path });
