<deleted> hey, is there any way to force twiki to use sendmail for outgoing mail, other than removing Net::SMTP?
<SvenDowideit> the code says:
<SvenDowideit> if( $this->{MAIL_HOST} ) {
<SvenDowideit> ...
<SvenDowideit> equire Net::SMTP;
<SvenDowideit> where     $this->{MAIL_HOST}  = $prefs->getPreferencesValue( 'SMTPMAILHOST' ) ||
<SvenDowideit>       $TWiki::cfg{SMTP}{MAILHOST};
<SvenDowideit> so one could re-write the configure text to say
<SvenDowideit> if you don't set {SMTP}{MAILHOST} OR SMTPMAILHOST in the topic preferences
<SvenDowideit> then it will use the MailProgram
<SvenDowideit> so deleted, the answer is, yes
