You're probably overthinking this. :)

Whether it's postfix or exim or any other daemon really shouldn't matter.
Your code will connect to SMTP server "localhost" on port "25". If you can
send an email from the command line (via 'mutt' or 'mail' etc) then you
should be ready to go:


$ *script/myapp_create.pl view Email Email*


    stash_key        =3D *email*
        content_type =3D text/plain
        charset      =3D utf-8

Then in a controller...

$c->stash->{*email*} =3D {
    from       =3D> $c->config->{email_from},
    'reply-to' =3D> $c->user->email_name,
    to         =3D> $c->user->email_name,
    cc         =3D> join(',', @cc),
    subject    =3D> $subj,
    body       =3D> $message,
$c->forward( $c->view('Email') );

Note on the manpage (below) that it will default to LOCALHOST and SMTP
unless you specify otherwise
