    use Net::POP3 together with Mail::Sendmail (or your favorite CPAN module capable of sending mail) in your web form processor.

    PS: asking a more specific question might result in more specific answers. :)

      I'm sorry, I thought my question was specific.
      I need a web form processor, for simple forms, that can send the input to an already existing SMTP server that requires "POP before SMTP" with my already existing POP3 server.
      Any recomendations would be greatly appreciated.

        Use your existing form processor, but add a couple of lines to connect to your POP server (using Net::POP3) before the call to SMTP.

    And to process your web-form you should look at the CGI module (or its various look-alikes (CGI::Simple, ...].

    what do you want to do exactly ?

    and what do you mean by will work with "POP before SMTP"

      I have moved to a new server (linux) that uses POP before SMTP to help thwart unauthorized relaying. I understand the concept, however the web forms from my old server (linux) nolonger work because they do not address the POP server before addressing the SMTP server. I need some way (a snip?) to enable this feature.
