Subject: Net::SMTP::TLS doesn't appear to support multi-line greeting
Date: Fri, 14 Dec 2012 08:30:17 +0000
To: bug-Net-SMTP-TLS@rt.cpan.org
From: Mike Tubby <mike@tubby.org>
Hello, Summary: Net::SMTP::TLS does not appear to correctly handle multi-line SMTP responses Example multi-line response: 220-public.tubby.org ESMTP Exim 4.76 #1 Fri, 14 Dec 2012 08:22:44 +0000 220-Computer Misuse Act (1990) UK Applies - Unauthorised access prohibited 220 Unsolicited Commercial Email (UCE) or 'SPAM' is forbidden. Description: I was attempting to debug a new installation of Exim4 on a server that needs TLS and AUTH so I wrote small PERL script: #!/usr/bin/perl use Net::SMTP::TLS; $host = "localhost"; $port = 587; $hello = "x.y"; $user = "fred"; $pass = "bloggs"; $smtp = new Net::SMTP::TLS($host, Port=>$port, Hello=>$hello, User=>$user, Password=>$pass); if ($smtp) { print "ok, proceeding ...\n"; } else { print "fail, something went wrong: $@\n"; } exit; this fails with the following error: root@public:~# ./auth_tls.pl EHLO command failed: 220 Computer Misuse Act (1990) UK Applies - Unauthorised access prohibited at ./auth_tls.pl line 17 Changing the server greeting fixes this. System details: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64-bit root@public:~# uname -a Linux public 3.2.0-34-generic #53-Ubuntu SMP Thu Nov 15 10:48:16 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux root@public:~# perl -v This is perl 5, version 14, subversion 2 (v5.14.2) built for x86_64-linux-gnu-thread-multi (with 55 registered patches, see perl -V for more detail) Regards Mike
