NAME

       Qpsmtpd::Connection - A single SMTP connection

SYNOPSIS

         my $rdns = $qp->connection->remote_host;
         my $ip = $qp->connection->remote_ip;

DESCRIPTION

       This class contains details about an individual SMTP connection. A connection lasts the
       lifetime of a TCP connection to the SMTP server.

       See also Qpsmtpd::Transaction which is a class containing details about an individual SMTP
       transaction. A transaction lasts from "MAIL FROM" to the end of the "DATA" marker, or a
       "RSET" command, whichever comes first, whereas a connection lasts until the client
       disconnects.

API

       These API docs assume you already have a connection object. See the source code if you
       need to construct one. You can access the connection object via the "Qpsmtpd" object's
       "$qp->connection" method.

   new ( )
       Instantiates a new Qpsmtpd::Connection object.

   start ( %args )
       Initializes the connection object with %args attribute data.

   remote_host( )
       The remote host connecting to the server as looked up via reverse dns.

   remote_ip( )
       The remote IP address of the connecting host.

   remote_port( )
       The remote port.

   remote_info( )
       If your server does an ident lookup on the remote host, this is the identity of the remote
       client.

   local_ip( )
       The local ip.

   local_port( )
       The local port.

   hello( )
       Either "helo" or "ehlo" depending on how the remote client greeted your server.

       NOTE: This field is empty during the helo or ehlo hooks, it is only set after a successful
       return from those hooks.

   hello_host( )
       The host name specified in the "HELO" or "EHLO" command.

       NOTE: This field is empty during the helo or ehlo hooks, it is only set after a successful
       return from those hooks.

   notes($key [, $value])
       Get or set a note on the connection. This is a piece of data that you wish to attach to
       the connection and read somewhere else. For example you can use this to pass data between
       plugins.

   clone([%args])
       Returns a copy of the Qpsmtpd::Connection object. The optional args parameter may contain:

       no_reset (1|0)
           If true, do not reset the original connection object, the author has to care about
           that: only the cloned connection object is reset at the end of the connection

   relay_client( )
       True if the client is allowed to relay messages.
