About a possible Test::Smoke setup:

I've been using Msmtp as SMTP client with a literal "sendmail" symlink
in each branch's directory linking to the msmtp binary. In order to have
the Smoker not pick up the standard system sendmail, prepending a dot to
$PATH forces it to see the symlink first, resolve it and send the report
mail actually to msmtp, which then transmits it to the server.

This requires that Test::Smoke is configured for delivery to sendmail
and that Msmtp operates in its default sendmail mode.
