Do I need to install a specific version of Acorn to get this working with PHP 8.1? Is Acorn v4.2.2 too new? On a default install, requiring acorn and acorn-mail – I am getting this:

Fatal error : Composer detected issues in your platform: Your Composer dependencies require a PHP version “>= 8.2.0”. You are running 8.1.27.

You could test installing it with by adding the ignore-platform-reqs flag

Also, composer why-not roots/acorn-mail might give you more information

Yes, I did end up simply using a ignore-platform-reqs install. Just calling it out – the docs stated all that was required is PHP 8.1.

roots/acorn-mail doesn’t have any dependencies. Maybe you pulled in Acorn v5.0.0-alpha.0 at some point which is minimum 8.2?

Not 100% sure. Shouldn’t be related to this package though as you can see the composer.json doesn’t bring anything in.

Holy sh*t it works flawlessly. Nice one guys.
