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

I try to use the code exactly as writen in this site FAQ (how do I send mail), but nothing. Do I need to have a copy of 'sendmail' (program) in my directory. It doesn't mention anywhere that you have to set up 'sendmail'. I'm not experienced in Perl to know what all the bits of the program mean. So can someone help?
