2003-03-13 The package is temporarily unavailable at the above site and can be found here: http://vectorstream.com/tcl/packages/ in the mean time. I also have a version with rudimentary SMTP AUTH support (My additions are Public Domain). I'll offer it to the package maintainer in case work hasn't already proceeded in that area. Julian M Noble

2006-05-24 I would encourage scripters to use the more standard/supported tcllib "mime" and "smtp" packages or for someone to submit a wrapper for those packages that gives a simple interface like ezsmtp. There are enough anti-spam defenses in most mail servers nowadays that ezsmtp's simplistic view of the world is probably inadequate (need for auth-over-TLS, etc). -- D. J. Hagberg
