Subject: [PATCH] Email::Send::Sendmail added default paths
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 352b
It seems wise to add two additinal paths, /usr/sbin and /usr/lib to search of user paths when trying to find sendmail binary. On most Linux systems (Debian comes to mind) users don't necessary have /usr/sbin or /usr/lib (for older sendmail installations) in their PATH. Why should they? On the other hand, it's not nice when Email::Send can't find it.
