I did find something regarding this problem but it was of no use. It stated to change the code from this

# In the parent
my $s = $sock->accept();
if (!$s) {
    kill(9, $pid);
    die("accept failed: $!");
}

to this

sleep 1;

# In the parent
my $s = $sock->accept();
if (!$s) {
    kill(9, $pid);
    die("accept failed: $!");

}

but my code is like this

# In the parent
my $s = $sock->accept();
if (!$s) {
        sleep(1);
        $s = $sock->accept();
        if (!$s) {
                kill(9, $pid);
                die("accept failed: $!");
        }
}

and although I did put a sleep 1; before the comment (although I suspect that in this newer version the sleep was added in the condition) it it still did not compile properly.

Any thoughts ?

Thanks!

You get it to compile properly, it just fails one test! More people complain about the test failing, see for instance here. You probably should not worry that much about it. This means you can force install the package and it should all just work.

But in general, if you use the system perl try to install as much packages via your package manager if possible - this would also work around your issue. On Debian it's as simple as

apt-get install libmime-tools-perl

and you're done!

Installing libmime-tools-perl via apt solved this issue. –  kernel_panic Apr 15 '13 at 7:17

I have the same issue and on investigation I think I have identified the root cause.

I separated out the server and client code to get rid of any timing issues and found that the client or sending side was getting delayed for about 30 seconds trying to identify the sender using the mailaddress() function from Mail::Util.

So the workaround that I have found is the following, At the start of Smtpsend.t, i.e. just after the use statements add the following line,

$ENV{MAILDOMAIN} = 'example.com';

The test still takes 13 odd seconds to run but it completes successfully. You could of course just set this environment variable in your shell, but I was interested in a solution that could be distributed with the package.

Let me know if this works in your environment. I am running on OSX.

I will raise an issue with the Mime::Tools guys.

I'm sorry to answer this late but it appears that now it's working fine. Thank you! –  kernel_panic Jun 5 '13 at 19:49
