in reply to Net::SMTP_auth

Thank you very much. VERY, VERY useful.
I only think that there is a typo in the code example:
It is written: $smtp = Net::SMTP->new_auth('mailhost');
I think it should be: $smtp = Net::SMTP_auth->new('mailhost');

Thanks, I really needed exactly this module :)

    I was trying to use created by you Net::SMTP_auth package with the following code:
    #!perl -w use Net::SMTP; use Net::SMTP_auth; my $serverName = ""; $smtp = Net::SMTP_auth->new($serverName, Timeout => 30, Debug =>1); $smtp->auth('', '123456'); my $mailFrom = "levalt\"; my $mailTo = "levalt\"; $smtp->mail( $mailFrom ); $smtp->to( $mailTo ); $smtp->data(); $smtp->datasend("Subject: Updates To My Home Page\n"); $smtp->datasend("\n"); $smtp->datasend("Here are all the cool new links...\n\n"); $smtp->dataend(); $smtp->quit();
    I get an error: Unsupported authentication mechanism.

    Could you please give me a clue how to solve this problem?
    Please email me:

    edit: jeffa - code tags
      I too am with rogers and used the following to get mine to work:
      $smtp-auth('LOGIN', '', 'password');
      you may be able to substitute LOGIN with PLAIN but I have not tried. Give it a whirl.
