Net::SMTP::SSL - SSL support for Net::SMTP
my $smtps = Net::SMTP::SSL->new("example.com", Port => 465);
Hey! Read this!
Since Net::SMTP v1.28 (2014-10-08), Net::SMTP itself has support for SMTP over
SSL, and also for STARTTLS. Use Net::SMTP, not Net::SMTP::SSL.
Implements the same API
as Net::SMTP, but uses
IO::Socket::SSL for its network operations. Due to
the nature of "Net::SMTP"
method, it is not overridden to make
use of a default port for the SMTPS
service. Perhaps future versions
will be smart like that. Port 465
is usually what you want, and it's
not a pain to specify that.
For interface documentation, please see Net::SMTP.
