    Outlook is an email client, why not send emails directly to the target mail server from your script using something like MIME::Lite? As has been explained to you, the Outlook application is not necessary to send emails. Nobody suggested that Mail::Outlook would not install, rather that it hasn't been updated for years, has known bugs and may not work as expected with the version of Outlook you are running.

    I'm glad to hear that you got it working. I did use CPAN to install--not sure why it failed, but I didn't spend too much time looking into it.

[shmem]: perl -e 'warn "test$/", ^@^ '
[Eily]: well, at least it's right about warn doing the same thing as die :)
[shmem]: same with undef as last element
[msh210]: oh, good point. It's the best kind of correct
[shmem]: msh210: but I'd not call it a lie outright. That's when you do know the truth.
[msh210]: I don't have sendmail (I'm on MS Windows), so does one of you think you can report the bug?
[shmem]: msh210: 'tis about time to tell the sad truth to perl5porters - via perlbug
[msh210]: probably whoever wrote that actually knows the truth
[shmem]: msh210: you can save the perlbug text in a file and send that via your mail agent of choice
[msh210]: hm, okay, I'll try, thanks
