Alas all did not go according to plan:
Died at C:\Perl\site\lib/Mail/Mailer.pm line 266, line 1.
Having spotted that someone else was having a similar problem, I'm now curious as to why things like SMTP won't even work. I'm assuming that the above error is due to attempts to run mail commands for an app that doesn't exist.
All of this has raised a few of questions:
There doesn't appear to be a cpan-testers-dicussion type list, where testers can post questions or errors like this can be raised, then fixed or noted. None of the -help or -info mails or the web site mention anything like it. I'm loathed to send messages to cpan-testers mailing list, as that seems more to be a automated information list only. Having a separate discussion list would hopefully be very low volume, and thus questions would likely get resolved very quickly. If I posted to the cpan-testers list I'm likely to get lost in the torrent of automated mails, and possibly never get an answer.
I've posted this not to inflame any testers or maintainers, but purely as means to throw some ideas into the air.
I shall attempt to get testing up and running on my box at home and see if that has any similar problems.
