I'm developing an application on OS X (10.5.7) using Apache (2.2.11), mod_perl (2.0.2) and Mason. I'm using MIME::Entity to create an email, like this (error checking omitted for clarity):
my $entity = MIME::Entity->build ( To => $to,
From => $from,
Cc => $cc,
Subject => $subject,
Data => "$body\n"
open (MAIL, "|/usr/bin/mail");
The problem is that nothing seems to happen. I've used similar code on a Solaris system, where I invoked mail with the "-t" option. On OS X the "-t" option gives me a "broken pipe" error message on the close command. Without that option, no error messages appear, but no mail appears to be sent.
I have looked at the manpage for the OS X mail command and didn't find any help, but it's possible I missed something.
Has anyone been down this road before? Can you point me in the right direction?
