There's an SMTP module for perl that's part of the Net module. You use it something like: #!/whatever/perl use Net::SMTP; $smtp = Net::SMTP->new('remote.host'); $smtp->mail('nocolops'); #From address $smtp->to('ops'); $smtp->data(); # send the mail header -- end with a blank line $smtp->datasend("To: ops\n"); $smtp->datasend("From: nocol\n"); $smtp->datasend("\n"); #message body $smtp->datasend("The network has croaked\n"); $smtp->dataend(); $smtp->quit; There are a lot of options for it. If you have it installed the 'perldoc smtp' will bring up the man pages. -- _______________________________________________________________________ Rick Beebe (203) 785-6416 Manager, Systems & Network Engineering FAX: (203) 785-3978 ITS-Med Client & Technology Services Richard.Beebe@yale.edu Yale University School of Medicine P.O.
