Skeeve has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Yesterday I filed a bug using "perlbug" or at least I tried to.

When looking at I seem to be unable to find it.

Are there any prerequists which need to be fulffilled to be able to file a bug?

    You have finished composing your message. At this point, you have a few options. You can: * [Se]nd the message to and root@localhost, * [D]isplay the message on the screen, * [R]e-edit the message * Display or change the message's [su]bject * Save the message to a [f]ile to mail at another time * [Q]uit without sending a message Action (Send/Display/Edit/Subject/Save to File):

    If you selected 'Send' it may be stuck locally if your mail program is not properly configured.

      I fear that's it :(


        I've hardly used it, but each time I selected the 'save' option, as I know my local system does not have mail configured, and have to send it using my mail client.

        G'day Skeeve,

        I had the same problem, and for the same reason, some years ago. The solution was as ++marto indicated: send with my own email client.

        I just wanted to add a word of caution when doing this. When I first did this, I formatted the email as (what I thought was) a single <pre> block of monospace text. My email client decided to reformat this into a multi-nested series of <pre> and <p> blocks (I wasn't aware this had happened). When I checked on RT, it said the post was too long to display and indicated an attachment (which showed this horrible, email-client-generated mess).

        The fix was to change the settings for in my email client to send in "Plain Text Only". All subsequent posts to RT have appeared without any problems.
