in reply to Unable to check checkbox via LWP::UserAgent

May be there is some Javascript code executed on submit? Does this checkbox work in the browser with Javascript disabled?

Anyway I highly recommend you to try WWW::Mechanize for web automation.

    Thanks Gangabass,

    I've now confirmed that checking the boxes and submitting with JavaScript disabled in my browser (Firefox) saves my checkbox selections without a problem, so it seems that wasn't the issue.  I doubt JavaScript is used at all in Mailman's webpages, as it seems to work like straight HTML.

    Why do you recommend WWW::Mechanize?
