My advice would be to download the MailTools bundle from CPAN and use the Mail::Send or Mail::Mailer module.

my $mailer = '/usr/sbin/sendmail -t -oi'; my $recipient = 'foo@bar.com'; my $message = '...'; open my $mailer, "|$mailer" or die $!; print $mailer <<"END" or die $!; From: user\@domain.com To: $recipient Subject: Testing 123 $message END close $mailer or die $!;
Remember to make sure all data that goes into the headers (just $recipient in this example) is valid.
