in reply to Mail::Sender connection failing under CGI

could it be an authentication issue? IE, the user you are at the command line is permitted to send mail to the server, but the user the web server runs as is not? stab in the dark.

    If you're right, how to overcome this?

      If you're right, how to overcome this?

      have the cgi add a job to a queue ... the mail actually gets sent by a cron job reading from the queue running under the user account and not the webserver account

        Thanks for your reply. I was thinking myself about this kind of detour but found it a bit.. pathetic? Last week I was struggling with similar issue, namely LWP::UserAgent within CGI. No matter what, it is not possible to use them both when the server requires authentication over ssh. The only solutions found on internet suggest giving up on host authentication, or forcing ssh version, or using older ssl engine - all for nothing. I gave up in that case and started node.js. In this case it might be hard, since I have to use DBB::ODBC in the same script.. *Sigh*
