CPAN Testing woes

[ #32845 ]

So, I woke up the other morning to find that the mail exchanger for was rejecting my lovingly generated CPAN smoke reports, with 552 No ID? No Mail.

I use CPAN::YACSmoke, which uses CPANPLUS, which is using Test::Reporter, which by default uses Net::SMTP. And Net::SMTP doesn't generate a Message-ID header. Oh noes.

A quick code addition to POE::Component::Server::SimpleSMTP and use of the following script:

use strict;
use warnings;
use Data::Dumper;
use POE qw(Component::Server::SimpleSMTP Component::Client::DNS);
use Getopt::Long;

my ($address,$hostname);

GetOptions ( 'address' => \$address, 'hostname' => \$hostname );

die "You must specify an address and hostname\n" unless $address and $hostname;

my $named = POE::Component::Client::DNS->spawn();

        package_states => [
                'main' => [ qw(_start _default smtpd_send_failed) ],

exit 0;

sub _start {
  $_[HEAP]->{smptd} = POE::Component::Server::SimpleSMTP->spawn(
        address  => $address,
        hostname => $hostname,
        resolver => $named,

sub smtpd_send_failed {
  my ($uid,$error) = @_[ARG0..ARG1];
  print "$uid\n";
  print Dumper($error);
sub _default {
  my ($event, $args) = @_[ARG0 .. $#_];
  return 0 unless $event =~ /^smtpd/;
  my @output = ( "$event: " );

  foreach my $arg ( @$args ) {
      if ( ref($arg) eq 'ARRAY' ) {
              push( @output, "[" . join(" ,", @$arg ) . "]" );
      } else {
              push ( @output, "'$arg'" );
  print STDOUT join ' ', @output, "\n";
  return 0;

and using the CPANPLUS' cpantest_mx option to specify a mail exchanger to route mail through, I got CPAN test reports flowing again.

Could have done without all the hassle mind.
