Instead of using sendmail, use MIME::Lite or maybe Mail::Sender.

    Using Mail::Sender module and printed the log message. See the below code:
    #! /usr/bin/perl -w use Mail::Sendmail; %mail = ( To => '', From => '', Message => "This is a very short message" ); sendmail(%mail) or die $Mail::Sendmail::error; print "OK. Log says:\n", $Mail::Sendmail::log;
    The following log message is obtained:

    OK. Log says: Mail::Sendmail v. 0.79_16 - Tue Aug 7 13:27:58 2012 Date: Tue, 7 Aug 2012 13:27:58 +0530 Server: localhost Port: 25 From: Subject: To: Result: 250 2.0.0 q777vw5b026359 Message accepted for delivery

    But i dont find any messages in inbox.

      I think you want to at least read and understand Mail::Sendmail and spend some time learning about how email works. You're using a local mail server, not the gmail platform. I suspect you'll find a bounce in your local mail server explaining why this message hasn't been delivered.

      Message accepted for delivery

      But i dont find any messages in inbox.

      "accepted for delivery" means it is queued, its waiting to be sent, it is not the same as "delivered"

      Check your local mail account for bounce message (failure to deliver)

      But i dont find any messages in inbox

      GMail is known by me for silently accepting and discarding messages. This module is good though. It prints out

      Attachments successfully verified With No attachments Sending email Mail sent!

      Try this:

      #!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use Email::Send::SMTP::Gmail; my $mail=Email::Send::SMTP::Gmail->new( -smtp=>'', -login=>'', -pass=>'wadawada'); $mail->send(-to=>'', -subject=>'Hello smtp test', -verbose=>'1', -body=>'Just testing it', # -attachments=> 'full_path_2_file', ); $mail->bye;

      I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth.
