Net::SMTP

perlboy has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Is there a function that indicates if a send mail operation is successful or not? Kindly look at the code snippet below:
$smtp = Net::SMTP->new(servername); $smtp->mail($ENV{REMOTE_HOST}); $smtp->to($email_address); $smtp->data(); $smtp->datasend("To: " . $what_ever); $smtp->datasend("From: name\@xxxx.com \n"); $smtp->datasend("Subject: whatever"); $smtp->datasend("\n"); $smtp->datasend($email_msg); $smtp->dataend();
can i insert a function here that indicates if operation is successful (e.g., if $email_msg is not in the mail list) $smtp->quit();
Thank you for your kind response.

    Quoting directly from the Net::SMTP man page:

      Unless otherwise stated all methods return either a true or false value, with true meaning that the operation was a success. When a method states that it returns a value, failure will be returned as undef or an empty list.

    Check Net::Cmd's response() :
    response () Obtain a response from the server. Upon success the most signific +ant digit of the status code is returned. Upon failure, timeout etc., + undef is returned.
    since Net::SMTP is based on Net::Cmd.
