Good idea, so I gave it a whirl - but I'm on Win32 and it didn't work. The
report was prepared ok, but when it came to sending it I got:

Are you certain you want to send this message?
Please type "yes" if you are: yes
Died at D:/perl58_M/site/5.8.7/lib/Mail/Mailer.pm line 269, <STDIN> line 1.
Error removing C:\DOCUME~1\Rob\LOCALS~1\Temp\KSGmMCiup6 at
D:/perl58_M/5.8.7/lib/File/Temp.pm line 890, <STDIN> line 1.

The relevant part of Mailer.pm is:

268: # Fork and start a mailer
269: (defined($exe) && open($self,"|-"))
270: || $self->exec($exe, $args, \@to)
271: || die $!;
272:
273: # Set the headers
274: $self->set_headers($hdrs);

So it looks to me that the message didn't even get sent.

Since I still have that report I copied it into an email and sent it off to
http://www.velocityreviews.com/forums/(E-Mail Removed) . Will that suffice ?

Cheers,
Rob

Looks like that will suffice - judging by the autoreponse it generated which
says in part:

Your ticket has been assigned an ID of [perl #36654].

Cheers,

Looks as if Mail::Mailer is botched. But then looking into Mail::Mailer,
I can't see how it could ever work on Windows.

Yes, it will. 'perlbug' only makes sure that the report has some
information attached that are vital for the bug hunters and sends it to
an address more suitable for reports.

I suspect it doesn't work with Windows, though I didn't bother investigating
at all. Once the report is done it's no hassle to copy'n'paste into an email
and send it off, so I'll just settle for that.

Cheers,
Rob
