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


version 0.110005


This transport is used to send email over SMTP, either with or without secure sockets (SSL). 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.


The following attributes may be passed to the constructor:

host: the name of the host to connect to; defaults to localhost
ssl: if true, connect via SSL; defaults to false
port: port to connect to; defaults to 25 for non-SSL, 465 for SSL
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


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