Subject: Net::SMTP->new() HOST parameter is incompatible with old versions
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 383b
The HOST parameter in Net::SMTP's constructor used to be the only way other than Net::Config to specify an MX in older versions at least up to 2.26; this should be documented. Code written for the current v2.31 will break with an obscure "Error setting up SMTP connection:" e.g. on Debian Sarge while passing HOST as an extra parameter instead of as part of OPTIONS works everywhere.
