( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Hi all,

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):

use MIME::Entity; my $entity = MIME::Entity->build ( To => $to, From => $from, Cc => $cc, Subject => $subject, Data => "$body\n" ); open (MAIL, "|/usr/bin/mail"); $entity->print(\*MAIL); close(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?
