As of May 30, 2022 Google will no allow "less secure apps". Unfortunately that means we can no longer use this app to send STMP email (ex. user@gmail.com -s smtp.gmail.com:587 -xu). Is there a workaround or feature to use this app with Gmail OAUTH2?

Looks like I never got this message. Here is the fix from 2 years ago.

Hi Maintainer, when you run the "sendEmail" program the following error occurs: invalid SSL_version specified at /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl/IO/Socket/SSL.pm line 568. Installing sendEmail via yaourt went smoothly and an error did not occur. system infos: # pacman -Qi sendemail Name : sendemail Version : 1.56-1 Beschreibung : A lightweight command line SMTP email client written in Perl Architektur : i686 URL : http://caspian.dotconf.net/menu/Software/SendEmail/ Lizenzen : GPL Gruppen : Nichts Stellt bereit : Nichts Hängt ab von : perl perl-net-ssleay perl-io-socket-ssl Optionale Abhängigkeiten: Nichts Benötigt von : Nichts Optional für : Nichts In Konflikt mit : Nichts Ersetzt : Nichts Installationsgröße : 79,00 KiB Packer : Unknown Packager Erstellt am : Do 31 Dez 2015 15:55:21 CET Installiert am : Do 31 Dez 2015 15:55:32 CET Installationsgrund : Ausdrücklich installiert Installations-Skript : Nein Verifiziert durch : Nichts # uname -r 4.3.3-3-MANJARO Regards bluelupo

Got hit (AGAIN!) by some SSLv3 Version wrong issue. Found that the Debian Guys got a fix for this. With this fix it works for me, finally. Created a new PKGBUILD and placed it on pastebin.com: http://pastebin.com/GAd7ZwQK Enjoy!

This package had problems. I wrote a similar programme, called send_email_via_smtp, which is now also on AUR.

Instead of this package, smpt-cli works without problems.

The patch link does not work. What does it mean to "restrict perl-io-socket-ssl<=1.66", I do not know how to deal with that.

Guys, with latest perl-io-socket-ssl release the patch to sendEmail has to look like this: diff -ruN a/sendEmail-v1.56/sendEmail.pl b/sendEmail-v1.56/sendEmail.pl --- a/sendEmail-v1.56/sendEmail.pl 2009-09-29 18:25:27.000000000 +0200 +++ b/sendEmail-v1.56/sendEmail.pl 2013-04-15 07:28:22.543469705 +0200 @@ -1903,7 +1903,7 @@ if ($conf{'tls_server'} == 1 and $conf{'tls_client'} == 1 and $opt{'tls'} =~ /^(yes|auto)$/) { printmsg("DEBUG => Starting TLS", 2); if (SMTPchat('STARTTLS')) { quit($conf{'error'}, 1); } - if (!

Or in the meantime, here is the patch that makes it: http://sources.gentoo.org/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi/gentoo-x86/net-mail/sendEmail/files/1.56-overzealous-version-check.patch?view=markup

You should restrict perl-io-socket-ssl<=1.66 as newer versions break functionality. The author has been emailed on 01-Jan-2013.
