Subject: Multiline SMTP Service ready bug
I've recently found and fixed a bug in this module when connecting to some SMTP servers. I've documented this issue in more detail here: http://tonyborries.com/techblog/cpanel-exim-and-perls-netsmtptls/ TL;DR: Multiline SMTP Service Ready Responses (220 status) cause the connection to fail, as only the first line is read on connect, leaving the additional lines in the buffer. Below I've included my fix. $ diff Net-SMTP-TLS-0.12/lib/Net/SMTP/TLS.pm Net-SMTP-TLS-0.12- fixed/lib/Net/SMTP/TLS.pm 117,121c117,126 < # read the line immediately after connecting < my ($rsp,$txt) = $me->_response(); < if(not $rsp == 220){ < croak "Could not connect to SMTP server: $host $txt\n"; < } ---
