Some background - we’re migrating from old Windows 2008 R2 environments that have been running v5.12.4 without issues for years. On the new environment we’re running the latest ActiveState build v5.28.1. I was expecting some issues between the versions but I’m running into several, one of which I already have a discussion going for but this is a different issue related to Net::SMTP.
In short, the Net::SMTP->new() constructor always returns complaining “cannot determine port at script.pl line X” regardless of what port I enter, even if I enter no port assuming the default. Has anyone else run into this? It’s almost as if the new() constructor is simply broken.
