in reply to Can't get Net::SMTP to work

Have you tried using the server's IP address rather than host name? Net::SMTP->new appears to return undef if it can't lookup the host name.

$ perl -MNet::SMTP -MData::Dumper -e'print Dumper(Net::SMTP->new(Host +=> "", Debug => 1, Timeout => 60))' $VAR1 = undef; $ perl -MNet::SMTP -MData::Dumper -e'print Dumper(Net::SMTP->new(Host +=> "", Debug => 1, Timeout => 60))' Net::SMTP>>> Net::SMTP(2.31) Net::SMTP>>> Net::Cmd(2.29) Net::SMTP>>> Exporter(5.66) Net::SMTP>>> IO::Socket::INET(1.33) Net::SMTP>>> IO::Socket(1.34) Net::SMTP>>> IO::Handle(1.33) Net::SMTP=GLOB(0x9ff45e8)<<< 220 ESMTP Postfix (Ubuntu) Net::SMTP=GLOB(0x9ff45e8)>>> EHLO localhost.localdomain Net::SMTP=GLOB(0x9ff45e8)<<< Net::SMTP=GLOB(0x9ff45e8)<<< 250-PIPELINING Net::SMTP=GLOB(0x9ff45e8)<<< 250-SIZE 10240000 Net::SMTP=GLOB(0x9ff45e8)<<< 250-ETRN Net::SMTP=GLOB(0x9ff45e8)<<< 250-STARTTLS Net::SMTP=GLOB(0x9ff45e8)<<< 250-AUTH PLAIN LOGIN Net::SMTP=GLOB(0x9ff45e8)<<< 250-AUTH=PLAIN LOGIN Net::SMTP=GLOB(0x9ff45e8)<<< 250-ENHANCEDSTATUSCODES Net::SMTP=GLOB(0x9ff45e8)<<< 250-8BITMIME Net::SMTP=GLOB(0x9ff45e8)<<< 250 DSN $VAR1 = bless( \*Symbol::GEN0, 'Net::SMTP' );

    Yes, actually, I initially had the IP address, but changing to the hostname was one of my attempts to get it to work.

    Also, what is odd, even with "Debug => 1" set, I don't get ANY output from the 'new' routine. It is almost like it immediately fails and returns.
