I want to work on Perl 5 Core (Author: Graham Barr)
While working on a Perl "mailman" I found myself using Net::SMTP
talking to "localhost" from "public IPnr".

To prevent configurations like:
mynetworks=,<put your public address here>
, I want to connect from localhost to talk to localhost.

So, I want to find the SUPER-Class of Net::SMTP
that can do that for me.

I'll be there on sunday (9th).
