Do you mean "last" rather than "break"? Also, I don't think "<<" is a valid open mode.
(Update/comment: If the record is found, why not "exit" rather than just break out of the loop? And otherwise just fall through to the append sub.)

    You are right. Too much C recently. As to the open mode, it should read...
    ## Append to file open(FH, ">>", "$filename") || die "Cannot open $filename to append: $ +!\n";
    If the record is found, why not "exit" rather than just break out of the loop?
    Because I don't know what needs to be done next.

      According to the OP, "if the email exists I would like to have it do nothing"
        Actually, the OP said they want to ask for another email address.
