Mail::Transport::Exim(User Contributed Perl DocumentMail::Transport::Exim(3pm)



NAME
       Mail::Transport::Exim - transmit messages using external Exim program

INHERITANCE
        Mail::Transport::Exim
          is a Mail::Transport::Send
          is a Mail::Transport
          is a Mail::Reporter

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

DESCRIPTION
       Implements mail transport using the external 'Exim' program.  When
       instantiated, the mailer will look for the binary in specific system
       directories, and the first version found is taken.

METHODS
       Constructors

       Mail::Transport::Exim->new(OPTIONS)

           If you have Exim installed in a non-standard location, you will
           need to specify the path, using new(proxy).

            Option    --Defined in     --Default
            executable  Mail::Transport  undef
            hostname    Mail::Transport  'localhost'
            interval    Mail::Transport  30
            log         Mail::Reporter   'WARNINGS'
            password    Mail::Transport  undef
            port        Mail::Transport  undef
            proxy       Mail::Transport  undef
            retry       Mail::Transport  <false>
            timeout     Mail::Transport  120
            trace       Mail::Reporter   'WARNINGS'
            username    Mail::Transport  undef
            via         Mail::Transport  'exim'

DIAGNOSTICS
       Error: Errors when closing Exim mailer $program: $!

           The Exim mail transfer agent did start, but was not able to handle
           the message correctly.

       Warning: Message has no destination

           It was not possible to figure-out where the message is intended to
           go to.

       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.
