mmittiga17 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi all, I am using Perl's Pop3 module to download email along with Mime::Parser to detach any files into readable formats. I have never seen this before but I am now getting an error message: no decoder for uuencode at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/MIME/Parser.pm line 789 no decoder for uuencode at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/MIME/Parser.pm line 789 Debug shows this for the first time: with cipher DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA (256/256 bits)) (No client certificate I am using pop3 with ssl. Here is my code.

#---set mail credentials---# my $_MAILHOST="xxxxx"; my $_USER="xxxx"; #username my $_PASS="xxxx"; #password #---Define output directory---# my $_OUTDIR="/x/xxx/mail/xxx"; #Output attachments here #---Begin retrieve mail and strip attachment---# my $i = 0; my $parser = new MIME::Parser; my $pop = new Mail::POP3Client( HOST =>$_MAILHOST, USER =>$_USER, PASSWORD =>$_PASS, DEBUG =>2, SOCKET => undef, USESSL => 1 ); $parser->output_dir( $_OUTDIR ); if( $pop->Count() < 0 ) { die "Error accessing POP mailbox"; } for( $i = 0; $i <= $pop->Count(); $i++ ) { my $wholeBody = $pop->HeadAndBody( $i ); ### Automatically attempt to RFC 2047-decode the MIME headers? $parser->decode_headers(0); ### default is false ### Look for uuencode in "text" messages, and extract it? $parser->extract_uuencode(0); ### default is false my $entity = $parser->parse_data( $wholeBody ); #$pop->Delete( $i ); }

If I pull the mail via Outlook I do not have any issues. Any advise will be appreciated.

    What is different between then and now?

    Is your script now running on a different PC? Does it happen with certain emails but not others? How can you cause this?

      Nothing has changed. I have used the same code to pull and extract attachments for different email accounts that receive attachements from different providers. I now believe this has to do with Net::SSLeay and openSSL. Some reason Net::SSLeay will not install via cpan.
      Cannot determine perl version info from lib/Net/SSLeay.pm Cannot determine license info from lib/Net/SSLeay.pm *** Found OpenSSL-0.9.8e installed in /usr *** Be sure to use the same compiler and options to compile your OpenS +SL, perl, and Net::SSLeay. Mixing and matching compilers is not supported. Do you want to run external tests? These tests *will* *fail* if you do not have network connectivity. [n] + n Checking if your kit is complete...
