Crypt-SSLeay can't verify hostnames

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

Net::SSL from Crypt-SSLeay can\'t verify hostnames; either install IO::Socket::SSL or turn off verification by setting the PERL_LWP_SSL_VERIFY_HOSTNAME environment variable to 0
Is there a way around this problem ?
currently To work around the error "Net::SSL from Crypt-SSLeay can\'t verify hostnames" i used PERL_NET_HTTPS_SSL_SOCKET_CLASS="IO::Socket::SSL" .But this doesn't look convincing

    The error message lists two alternative approaches. You didn't tell us which one you took.

    Did you install IO::Socket::SSL? What was the outcome?

    Did you set PERL_LWP_SSL_VERIFY_HOSTNAME=0? What was the outcome? Note that this disables the hostname verification.

      I installed IO::Socket::SSL and used this to verify hostnames and currently working fine for me.
      I wanted to know why Crypt-SSLeay fails to verify hostnames?.

[ambrus]: MLX: if it's a work email, then it's probably not Uncle Sam that matters, but what the account managing server at work thinks your name is. Those can differ. For example, we've had two co-workers with identical real name at one point,
[ambrus]: so one got a stupid suffix in the email account (people have email address based on their real name here usually).
