in reply to Problem in sending Form data via email

Merlyn's example is great, except that it uses the UNIX-based "sendmail" as the email-sending mechanism, and you specified you are on a Windows 2000 system using Microsoft IIS.

The "Mail::Sendmail" Perl module is good IIS substitute for UNIX sendmail -- because it is all Perl, works on Windows (as well as other platforms), and for Windows can be found precompiled using the ActiveState Perl Package Manager for their Windows version of Perl.

Corion gives a good description of using Mail::Sendmail in the module reviews on this site.

If needed, see the ActiveState description of PPM. With ppm on your Win 2000 server, finding the "Mail::Sendmail" module is as easy as typing (from the command line) ppm, then
search Mail::Sendmail
to ensure it is there, then if so:
install Mail::Sendmail
