DESCRIPTION
       Each object which extends Mail::Transport::Receive implement a protocol
       which can get messages into your application.  The internals of each
       implementation can differ quite a lot, so have a look at each separate
       manual page as well.

DIAGNOSTICS
       Warning: Avoid program abuse: specify an absolute path for $exec.

           Specifying explicit locations for executables of email transfer
           agents should only be done with absolute file names, to avoid
           various pontential security problems.

       Warning: Executable $exec does not exist.

           The explicitly indicated mail transfer agent does not exists. The
           normal settings are used to find the correct location.

       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.
