As davido and Fletch have pointed out above, you should really be using Mail::Mailer.

But as to the error message: those are coming not from Perl, but from the shell that perl is spawning to run sendmail. You're using unquoted angle brackets in the email addresses, which the shell interprets as redirection symbols. Except there's no file name or symbol after the >, just a newline, which is a ... wait for it ... syntax error because the newline is not expected.

You could fix it by escaping the angle brackets, but as the others have mentioned, it'd probably be better to go with Mail::Mailer.

Cleaned up text spacing a little.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
