in reply to email on WIN32

between all your options to send mail, while you ar on win32 system with an SMTP server running I often use the core solution via the Win32::OLE module.
use Win32::OLE qw(with); my $Message = Win32::OLE->new("CDO.Message"); $Message->{From}="a\@b.c"; $Message->{To}="b\@b.c"; $Message->{Bcc}="c\@b.c"; $Message->{Subject}="test subj"; $Message->{TextBody}="ahahahahahah\n\ndjhdjkfhdasjkfh"; $Message->Send()||die $Win32::OLE::LastError,$^E;
without the SMTP server locally, you have to specify which server you want use via a new object Win32::OLE->new ("CDO.Configuration") ;, and things go unfriendly ..

    thanks to all! I got my procedure working by initializing smtp with 'localhost' did work with '' but yahoo didn't like it and rejected the messages after the 1st few. Also Yahoo wanted authentication and that added another wrinkle.
