in reply to SMTP and TLS

After a little investigation I believe that the problem is likely that the Amazon server is not greeting with a 220 welcome message (as you can see from the telnet session (in orig post) that it doesn't send one). So my clients are hanging, waiting for the response.

I suppose the best solution (if I want to stick with Amazon) is to modify one of these clients. *sigh*

    I ended up configuring sendmail to work with Amazon's SES

    First set up a secure tunnel

    And then configure sendmail

    Then I can just use Mail::Sender again. This set up seems to work nicely. I hate not being able to resolve the exact problem (above) but I need to move onto other things :)
