This Haskell module provides an interface to transmitting a mail message.

This is not compatible with Windows at this time.

sendmail Source #


:: Maybe String

The envelope from address. If not specified, takes the system's default, which is usually based on the effective userid of the current process. This is not necessarily what you want, so I recommend specifying it.

-> [String]

A list of recipients for your message. An empty list is an error.

-> String

The message itself.

-> IO () 

Transmits an e-mail message using the system's mail transport agent.

This function takes a message, a list of recipients, and an optional sender, and transmits it using the system's MTA, sendmail.

If sendmail is on the PATH, it will be used; otherwise, a list of system default locations will be searched.

A failure will be logged, since this function uses safeSystem internally.

This function will first try sendmail. If it does not exist, an error is logged under System.Cmd.Utils.pOpen3 and various default sendmail locations are tried. If that still fails, an error is logged and an exception raised.
