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

my %mail = ( To => "$address1", Cc => "$email2", From => "$emailfrom", Subject => "$email_subject", Message => "$email_mess", ); sendmail(%mail) or die $Mail::Sendmail::error;
Gives software error:
Error sending to <> (553 sorry, that domain isn't in my lis +t of allowed rcpthosts (#5.7.1))
could anyone tell me why that shows up and what I can do about it. (script is run on shared hosting, no root access...) thanks for your help

    That's an error from qmail indicating you don't have permission to relay. You'll have to talk to your hosting provider; probably they have some mail interface they require you to use to stop formmail spamming.
