NAME

       Mail::Transport::SMTP - transmit messages without external program

INHERITANCE

        Mail::Transport::SMTP
          is a Mail::Transport::Send
          is a Mail::Transport
          is a Mail::Reporter

SYNOPSIS

        my $sender = Mail::Transport::SMTP->new(...);
        $sender->send($message);

        $message->send(via => 'smtp');

DESCRIPTION

       This module implements transport of "Mail::Message" objects by
       negotiating to the destination host directly by using the SMTP
       protocol, without help of "sendmail", "mail", or other programs on the
       local host.

       warning: you may need to install Net::SMTPS, to get TLS support.

       Extends "DESCRIPTION" in Mail::Transport::Send.

METHODS

       Extends "METHODS" in Mail::Transport::Send.

   Constructors
       Extends "Constructors" in Mail::Transport::Send.

             via         Mail::Transport  'smtp'

           executable => FILENAME
           helo => HOST
             The fully qualified name of the sender's host (your system) which
             is used for the greeting message to the receiver.  If not
             specified, Net::Config or else Net::Domain are questioned to find
             it.  When even these do not supply a valid name, the name of the
             domain in the "From" line of the message is assumed.

           hostname => HOSTNAME|ARRAY
           interval => SECONDS
           log => LEVEL
           password => STRING
             The password to be used with the new(username) to log in to the
             remote server.

           port => INTEGER
           proxy => PATH
           retry => NUMBER|undef
           smtp_debug => BOOLEAN
             Simulate transmission: the SMTP protocol output will be sent to
             your screen.

           timeout => SECONDS
             The number of seconds to wait for a valid response from the
             server before failing.

           trace => LEVEL
           username => STRING
             Use SASL authentication to contact the remote SMTP server
             (RFC2554).  This username in combination with new(password) is
             passed as arguments to Net::SMTP method auth.  Other forms of
             authentication are not supported by Net::SMTP.  The "username"
             can also be specified as an Authen::SASL object.

           via => CLASS|NAME

   Sending mail
       Extends "Sending mail" in Mail::Transport::Send.

       $obj->destinations( $message, [$address|ARRAY] )
           Inherited, see "Sending mail" in Mail::Transport::Send

       $obj->putContent($message, $fh, %options)
           Inherited, see "Sending mail" in Mail::Transport::Send

       $obj->send($message, %options)
           Inherited, see "Sending mail" in Mail::Transport::Send

       $obj->trySend($message, %options)
           Try to send the $message once.   This may fail, in which case this
           method will return "false".  In list context, the reason for
           failure can be caught: in list context "trySend" will return a list
           of five values:

            (success, error code, error text, error location, quit success)

           Success and quit success are booleans.  The error code and -text
           are protocol specific codes and texts.  The location tells where
           the problem occurred.

            -Option--Default
             from    < >
             to      []

           from => ADDRESS
             Your own identification.  This may be fake.  If not specified, it
             is taken from Mail::Message::sender(), which means the content of
             the "Sender" field of the message or the first address of the
             "From" field.  This defaults to "< >", which represents "no
             address".

           to => ADDRESS|[ADDRESSES]
             Alternative destinations.  If not specified, the "To", "Cc" and
             "Bcc" fields of the header are used.  An address is a string or a
             Mail::Address object.

   Server connection
       Extends "Server connection" in Mail::Transport::Send.

       $obj->contactAnyServer()
           Creates the connection to the SMTP server.  When more than one
           hostname was specified, the first which accepts a connection is
           taken.  An IO::Socket::INET object is returned.

       $obj->findBinary( $name, [@directories] )
           Inherited, see "Server connection" in Mail::Transport

       $obj->remoteHost()
           Inherited, see "Server connection" in Mail::Transport

       $obj->retry()
           Inherited, see "Server connection" in Mail::Transport

       $obj->tryConnectTo($host, %options)
           Try to establish a connection to deliver SMTP to the specified
           $host.  The %options are passed to the "new" method of Net::SMTP.

   Error handling
       Extends "Error handling" in Mail::Transport::Send.

       $obj->AUTOLOAD()
           Inherited, see "Error handling" in Mail::Reporter

       $obj->addReport($object)
           Inherited, see "Error handling" in Mail::Reporter

       $obj->defaultTrace( [$level]|[$loglevel, $tracelevel]|[$level,
       $callback] )
       Mail::Transport::SMTP->defaultTrace( [$level]|[$loglevel,
       $tracelevel]|[$level, $callback] )
           Inherited, see "Error handling" in Mail::Reporter

       $obj->errors()
           Inherited, see "Error handling" in Mail::Reporter

       $obj->log( [$level, [$strings]] )
       Mail::Transport::SMTP->log( [$level, [$strings]] )
           Inherited, see "Error handling" in Mail::Reporter

       $obj->logPriority($level)
       Mail::Transport::SMTP->logPriority($level)
           Inherited, see "Error handling" in Mail::Reporter

       $obj->logSettings()
           Inherited, see "Error handling" in Mail::Reporter

       $obj->notImplemented()
           Inherited, see "Error handling" in Mail::Reporter

           Inherited, see "Error handling" in Mail::Reporter

       $obj->trace( [$level] )
           Inherited, see "Error handling" in Mail::Reporter

       $obj->warnings()
           Inherited, see "Error handling" in Mail::Reporter

       Extends "Cleanup" in Mail::Transport::Send.

       $obj->DESTROY()
           Inherited, see "Cleanup" in Mail::Reporter

DIAGNOSTICS

       Warning: Message has no destination
           It was not possible to figure-out where the message is intended to
           go to.

       Notice: No addresses found to send the message to, no connection made
       Error: Package $package does not implement $method.
           Fatal error: the specific package (or one of its superclasses) does
           not implement this method where it should. This message means that
           some other related classes do implement this method however the
           class at hand does not.  Probably you should investigate this and
           probably inform the author of the package.

       Warning: Resent group does not specify a destination
           The message which is sent is the result of a bounce (for instance
           created with Mail::Message::bounce()), and therefore starts with a
           "Received" header field.  With the "bounce", the new destination(s)
           of the message are given, which should be included as "Resent-To",
           "Resent-Cc", and "Resent-Bcc".

           The "To", "Cc", and "Bcc" header information is only used if no
           "Received" was found.  That seems to be the best explanation of the
           RFC.

           As alternative, you may also specify the "to" option to some of the
           senders (for instance Mail::Transport::SMTP::send(to) to overrule
           any information found in the message itself about the destination.
