perl -c mail.pl Possible unintended interpolation of @address in string at mail.pl lin +e 11. Possible unintended interpolation of @address in string at mail.pl lin +e 12. Global symbol "@address" requires explicit package name at mail.pl lin +e 11. Global symbol "@address" requires explicit package name at mail.pl lin +e 12.
my $MailFrom = "from\@address.com"; my $MailTo = "gilesy\@address.com";

Try this. Didn't check the rest. Regards, Karl

    Hi Karl, Thanks for the swift reply. I actually edited my code when posting to this site and do have that code in my script
    my $MailFrom = "from\@address.com"; my $MailTo = "gilesy\@address.com";
    ..... but the email isn't being sent. I'm getting the output I displayed in original post.

      Update:

      Sorry, the first line was wrong for you. But i think you noted this.

      #!/usr/bin/perl use Net::SMTP; use strict; use warnings; print "Content-type: text/html\n\n"; my $MailHost = "mailhost"; my $MailFrom = "someone\@somewhere"; my $MailTo = "someone\@somewhere"; my $subject = "Super!\n"; my $MailBody = "It works!\n"; my $smtp = Net::SMTP->new($MailHost) || die $!; $smtp->mail($MailFrom); $smtp->to($MailTo); $smtp->data(); $smtp->datasend("To: $MailTo\n"); $smtp->datasend("From: $MailFrom\n"); $smtp->datasend("Subject: $subject\n"); $smtp->datasend("\n"); $smtp->datasend("$MailBody\n\n"); $smtp->dataend(); $smtp->quit;

      Please try this. Regards, Karl

        Hi Karl, I tried your code but the email still isn't being received. Must be a security issue on the server.
