Greetings, I maintain many e-commerce websites for various clients and about 2 weeks ago it suddenly became impossible for any of my Perl code to send e-mail to customers or clients when orders were placed from the websites. All my code uses the module NET::SMTP::TLS after debugging this code I found that the error causing the code to crash was coming from another module which TLS depends upon, namely: IO::Socket::SSL. I also tried using NET::SMTP::SSL The error is: invalid SSL_version specified at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/IO/Socket/SSL.pm line 308 I have tried to use the simple NET::SMTP to send mail (which does not require the SSL module) but then I have to send from localhost which does not have a FQDN and therefore all the email ends up being filtered out as spam. Perl seems totally dependent upon NET::SMTP to be able to send e-mail so I am at a dead end and none of my clients or their customers are receiving sales notification/receipts. I hope you can find the time to fix this bug (which must have been introduced in a new version of one of the modules) . My guess is that ::SSL now requires a version number to be passed and that ::TLS is not doing this, so therefore ::TLS needs updating so that it passes the version number in a way that IO::Socket::SSL accepts, or I guess IO::Socket::SSL could be modified to take a version number optionally? This is just a guess in case it helps to fast track a fix for this urgent issue. I have tried to resolve the problem and now I have waited several days expecting a fix to appear, since I assumed 10's of thousands of developers and their customers would be affected by this, but I am starting to think that this bug is not effecting as many people as I thought it would and I am therefore contacting you directly. Note: I have sent this bug report to both bug-IO-Socket-SSL@rt.cpan.org AND bug-Net-SMTP-TLS@rt.cpan.org since I do not know who should best handle this problem? Please help.
