( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

This is hopefully a simple one, where I am just missing a clue in the docs.

What I want is a simple script that tells me if an e-mail sent with Net::SMTP succeeds, or if it does not, why it does not.

In the example below I have a short script that sends mail, and tells me which addresses were successful. What I would like is to also list which ones failed -- hopefully with a failure code as well.

Here's the script:

#test_mail.pl use Net::SMTP; $smtp = Net::SMTP->new( Host => '192.168.55.173', Debug => 1, ); $smtp -> mail("root\@test-server.my.home"); @good = $smtp -> recipient('good_address@my.home','bad_address@my.home +',{ SkipBad => 1, Notify => ['FAILURE']}); $smtp -> data(); $smtp -> datasend("TO: good_address@my.home\n"); $smtp -> datasend("TO: bad_address@my.home\n"); $smtp -> datasend("SUBJECT: Test e-mail from root\n"); $smtp -> datasend("\n"); $smtp -> datasend("A test message.\n"); $smtp -> dataend(); print "These addresses went: @good\n"; $smtp -> quit();

When I run this the print statement does print out good_address@my.home as I expect. And I can see how the addresses succeed or fail with the debug output:

Net::SMTP=GLOB(0x977cdc0)>>> MAIL FROM:<root@test-server.my.home> Net::SMTP=GLOB(0x977cdc0)<<< 250 2.1.0 Sender OK Net::SMTP=GLOB(0x977cdc0)>>> RCPT TO:<good_address@my.home> NOTIFY=FAI +LURE Net::SMTP=GLOB(0x977cdc0)<<< 250 2.1.5 Recipient OK Net::SMTP=GLOB(0x977cdc0)>>> RCPT TO:<bad_address@my.home> NOTIFY=FAIL +URE Net::SMTP=GLOB(0x977cdc0)<<< 550 5.1.1 User unknown

What I would like is to get bad_address and the 550 user unknown error into a form where I can print it. (This will eventually end up in a cgi script.)

It's got to be something simple that I am missing. Any clues?
