OT - Sending Email on Windowsby tanger (Scribe)
|on Apr 22, 2005 at 06:36 UTC||Need Help??|
tanger has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
k i had enough with this. i've spent the last 3 hours or so trying to get my perl script to send e-mail. i tried using several of the known modules such as Mail::Mailer, Mail::Sendmail, and NET::SMTP.
I know that on windows you need to connect to a SMTP server, but I have no clue what my SMTP address is. I tried going to www.dnsreport.com to type in my domain name and copied and paste the mail address, but stil NO luck.
I just recently read a lot about SMTP. I know that this problem I have (550 5.7.1 Unable to relay ) is due to a connection failure to the SMTP. I tried using the Relay config options under IIS for windows but still no luck.
I guess I'm stuck, and I might just use that "blat.exe" program. OR please say that doens't require a SMTP address too?
