Net::SSLGlue::SMTP - make Net::SMTP able to use SSL

Net::SSLGlue::SMTP extends Net::SMTP so one can either start directly with SSL
or switch later to SSL using the STARTTLS command.
By default it will take care to verify the certificate according to the rules
for SMTP implemented in IO::Socket::SSL.
All of these methods can take the SSL_* parameter from IO::Socket::SSL to
change the behavior of the SSL connection. The following parameters are
The method new of Net::SMTP is now able to start directly with SSL when
the argument <SSL = 1>> is given. In this case it will not create an
IO::Socket::INET object but an IO::Socket::SSL object. One can give the
usual SSL_* parameter of IO::Socket::SSL to Net::SMTP::new.
If the connection is not yet SSLified it will issue the STARTTLS command and
change the object, so that SSL will now be used. The usual SSL_* parameter of
IO::Socket::SSL will be given.
Once the SSL connection is established the object is derived from
IO::Socket::SSL so that you can use this method to get information about the
certificate. See the IO::Socket::SSL documentation.
Specifies the path or a file where the CAs used for checking the certificates
are located. This is typically etc/ssl/certs on UNIX systems.
If set to 0, verification of the certificate will be disabled. By default
it is set to 1 which means that the peer certificate is checked.
Usually the name given as the hostname in the constructor is used to verify the
identity of the certificate. If you want to check the certificate against
another name you can specify it with this parameter.
