E-mail with perl

on Mar 24, 2003 at 01:54 UTC ( #245363=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

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

Is there a way to embed the text into an e-mail, without sending the e-mail, letting the user send it. I was wondering if there is a module out there or an outlook API or something.

    The simplest option would be to send the email to the user and they could forward it.

    Or, if you're giving them an HTML page you could include a hyperlink of the form <a href="mailto:user@domain?subject=Blah&body=Blah%20Blah">Send Email</a>.

    Or, (once again assuming an HTML interface) you could give them the email body in a textarea in a form. When they submit the form (presumably after editing the text), your script would use Mail::Sender or similar to send it.
