This module is a versatile and extensible implementation of the SMTP protocol and its different evolutions like ESMTP and LMTP. The event driven object-oriented API makes easy to incorporate the SMTP protocol to your programs.
Other SMTPd implementations don't support useful ESMTP extensions and the LMTP protocol. Their interface design precludes adding them later. So I've decided to rewrite a complete implementation with extensibility in mind.
It provides mechanism to easy addition future or not yet implemented ESMTP extensions. Developers can hook code at each SMTP session state and change the module's behaviors by registering event call-backs. The class is designed to be easily inherited from.
To install this module type the following:
perl Makefile.PL make make test make install
This module requires these other modules and libraries:
