Sending mail from Lotus Notes (multiple mailboxes)

maskull has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi, I am trying to send a message from Lotus Notes. I have access to my own mailbox, plus we have a group mail that we use, mapped in my Workspace. The problem is that no matter which server and database I specify (see the line that is commented out), the script always sends the message from my mailbox, as myself. The code is below. I'd appreciate any input, I'm guessing some LotusScript expertise is required.
use strict; use warnings; use Win32::OLE; my $Notes = Win32::OLE->new('Notes.NotesSession'); # my $Database = $Notes->GetDatabase('server1', 'db1\myown.nsf'); my $Database = $Notes->GetDatabase('server2', 'db2\group.nsf'); $Database->OpenMail; my $Document = $Database->CreateDocument; $Document->{Form} = 'Memo'; $Document->{SendTo} = ['']; $Document->{Subject} = 'Test message'; my $Body = $Document->CreateRichTextItem("Body"); $Body->AppendText('test message'); $Document->Send(0);
EDIT: ----- Got it. It's $Document->{Principal} = '' method that allows you pose as the group sender :)
