If so, then I really wonder about the rationale to replace the old
framework for sending mails (as used in 2.22) with the new framework.
I fail to see the advantage, but I clearly do see the disadvantage
with the approximately 20 or so different modules for the simple
purpose of sending mail.


My cats know that I am a loser who goes out for hunting every day
without ever returning as much as a single mouse. Fortunately, I've
got a wife who's a real champ: She leaves the house and returns within
half an hour, carrying whole bags full of meal.
