send-email: fix obscure error when encryption=tls and smtp cannot connect
When encryption=tls and we cannot connect to the SMTP server, git-send-email was printing an obtuse perl error: Can't call method "command" on an undefined value at git-send-email line 927. This can occur when smtp host or port is misspelled, or the network is down, and encryption has been set to tls. Instead we expect some familiar "Cannot connect to SERVER:PORT" message. Fix it to print normal "smtp can't connect" diagnostics. Signed-off-by: Yakov Lerner <> Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <>
