I didn't to have to make him install the smtp server module.

What you really need is an SMTP client module, such as Net::SMTP, whose author has gone through great pains to implement all the intricacies of the various RFCs covering this protocol.

Once you've changed some of the headers as pointed out by earlier responses, your code will fail in all sorts of mysterious ways, for example it fails to correctly interpret server reponses and will loop endlessly when the server emits a 4xx or 5xx error code. This will happen when you least expect it: an unforeseen change in the server's configuration, a transient DNS error, an attempt to send a message whose size is larger than what the server accepts, etc.

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.
