Hi John,

The relevant Perl module should have been installed as a dependency of
the git-email package, which is how I (as the Cygwin Git maintainer)
meet that promise to provide the Mail::Address module. It's possible
that I've made an error in the package dependency records; I'm not
immediately able to check the details, but I should be able to look at
it next week.

Installing the package (perl-MailTools) suggested by "Achim Gratz <Stromeko@xxxxxxxx>" fixes the issue.

In the interim, are you able to provide a cygcheck output file per the
instructions at http://cygwin.com/problems.html? That'll let me /
others on the list check if something has gone wrong with your
installation to mean things weren't installed correctly.

I'll be happy to provide that file (cygcheck -s -v -r), if I can send it privately.

Thanks Adam for your answer and thanks to any one who has contributed to this thread.
