There seems to be a much faster response time (at least for me) with that address than with the one I currently use. I may very well substitute that bit of code with yours. Thank you for the contribution.
I do agree with marto that the best solution would be talk with the ISP. However, in the interest of continuing my experience and learning of Perl, I went with the script, at least for now. I just wanted to clear up the cause of the blank address, which seems to just be an error in parsing the address.
