DESCRIPTION

This appender is a very thin layer over the Net::SMTP module. It allows you to easily send important log messages by email, to one or several recipients. All of the Net::SMTP attributes are supported.

OPTIONS

from

The email address of the sender.

to

The email address of the recipient. You can put several addresses separated by a comma.

The subject of the email. Newlines and tabs are forbidden here.

all of the Net::SMTP options

They all start with an upper-cased letter. The most common are Host, Hello, Port, Timeout and Debug. See Net::SMTP for more.

EXAMPLE

The following Log4perl configuration file allows you to send an email on each use of $log->fatal().

  # Filter for FATAL
  log4perl.filter.MatchFatal = Log::Log4perl::Filter::LevelMatch
  log4perl.filter.MatchFatal.LevelToMatch  = FATAL
  log4perl.filter.MatchFatal.AcceptOnMatch = true

  # Email Appender for FATAL
  log4perl.appender.mailFatal = Log::Log4perl::Appender::SMTP
  log4perl.appender.mailFatal.to = webmaster@company.com
  log4perl.appender.mailFatal.Host = smtp.company.com
  log4perl.appender.mailFatal.subject = Fatal error on Foo!
  log4perl.appender.mailFatal.layout = Log::Log4perl::Layout::PatternLayout
  log4perl.appender.mailFatal.layout.ConversionPattern = %d F{1} %L %p> %m%n
  log4perl.appender.mailFatal.Filter = MatchFatal
