NMS FormMail and Microsoft

jgamble has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Is NMS FormMail solely for use on Unix systems?

If so, is there an equivalent perl module that can e-mail without exposing the recipient's address for web pages hosted on a Microsoft ME Server system?

(Hmm, I almost wrote "... web pages hosed on a ...")

    Of course you probably should have asked this question on the NMS Support List, however yes there is no problem with using the NMS FormMail on a Windows system, a significant proportion of our users are doing so and it has been extensively tested there.

    The things to watch are

    • You will need to use the SMTP: variant of the $mailprog configuration. You should ask your administrator or ISP about a suitable SMTP server to use
    • You should see this discussion about the shebang line when using IIS

    But you'll get our attention better if you send your questions to the mailling list


      Thanks, I apologize for failing to find the sites that you provided links to beforehand.

      I found the archive of the mailing lists at, and I'll look those over before pestering anyone. Thanks again.
