Here's a corrected version that works under -w and strict:
use strict; use Mail::Mailer; my $from_address = "perlmonk"; my $to_address = "user\@localhost"; my $subject = "hi"; my $body = "hello"; my $mailer = Mail::Mailer->new("sendmail"); $mailer->open({ From => $from_address, To => $to_address, Subject => $subject, }); print $mailer $body; $mailer->close();
(note that there was a missing semicolon)

and the second:

open(MAIL, "|/usr/lib/sendmail -oi -t -odq") || die "Can't open sendma +il: $!"; print MAIL <<MESSAGE; From: Your name <emailaddress\@blah.com> To: Recipient name <email address\@blah2.com> Subject: Mailing with Perl this is easy. MESSAGE close(MAIL);
(note that the heredoc was broken)
