Cannot load package 'Email::MIME::Header::AddressList'

-- ScottDungan45 - 15 Jul 2019

I have Foswiki v2.1.6 up and running on Alpine linux in a Docker container. So far everything is working fine with the excption of email.

The email settings are correctly configured (no warning or error messages). Test emails to the Webmaster Email do not send and there is no

error message either in ui or in logs. However, when I attempt to rest a user password, I get the following on a blank html page:
Foswiki detected an internal error - please check your Foswiki logs and webserver logs for more information.

Cannot load package 'Email::MIME::Header::AddressList': Attempt to reload Emailpath aborted.
Compilation failed in require

I checked that the Email::MIME::Header::AddressList perl module is installed:
cpan Email::MIME::Header::AddressList

Email::MIME::Header::AddressList is up to date (1.946).

I also verified that the module in in the @INC path:
perl -MFile::Find=find -MFile::Spec::Functions -Tlwe 'find { wanted => sub { print canonpath $_ if /\.pm\z/ }, no_chdir => 1 }, @INC' | grep AddressList

Any help would be appreciated.

Take a look at the packages installed by

This is part of Email::MIME, a core dependency.

To clarify my earlier comment. If you have a docker container using Alpine Linux where that module is missing you can review the modules included with as that container includes the proper module

Found the issue in timlegge/docker-foswiki Email::Address:XS is a dependency of Email::MIME. A new package for Alpine has been created and submitted to Alpine for approval. v1.10 of timlegge/docker-foswiki has a temporary fix
