      $child_pid = open (MAIL, "|/usr/sbin/sendmail -v"); # use -v

That just ain't gonna work son....

You need to specify recipient addresses on the command line or add the "-t" option.

As stated before, you can save yourself a lot of problems by not reinventing the wheel and using the likes of Mail::Send, MIME::Lite and friends. Using CGI to parse your incoming form is a good ideas as well. You're already using CGI::Carp and CGI is part of the core Perl distro.
