in reply to security concerns with using mail::mailer

This comment was in the "TO DO" section of the pod, meaning that the module author/maintainer was noting that he should do it, not you. Of course, you as the module "consumer" want to know that there may be a security problem in the module. The best thing to do in this case is to "Use the Source, Luke!":

The Source

There, you'll see the following little function, that might be of interest:

sub _cleanup_hdrs { my $hdrs = shift; my $h; foreach $h (values %$hdrs) { foreach (ref($h) ? @{$h} : $h) { s/\n\s*/ /g; s/\s+$//; } } }

So, in my estimation, this is "DONE", and no longer "TO DO". Perhaps you should contact the maintainer and request that the pod be updated? That's your call...

Update: Oh yeah, forgot to mention that you should make sure that you've got the latest VERSION (1.65) of Mail::Mailer, so you can rest assured that you have got the fix.
