#1: PERL to Email Script for Messaging

Posted on 2007-12-21 21:44:49 by Fred Atkinson

My current cellular provider does not currently have a Web
interface to send messages from the WWW. But they do provide me with
an email address to do the same.

Can anyone recommend an existing script that would someone to
message me by using a PERL script from a form so that an email to the
cell phone's messaging address could be sent?

I'm sure there are some already written and around. But I
want your recommendation.

I'm not a PERL programmer per se, though I've written some
very simple PERL scripts (that took a lot of time and patience for
me). I could customize an existing script but probably could not
write one that is more than a couple of simple functions. Please keep
that in mind when you make suggestions.

Regards,




Fred

I use and recommend CGI::ContactForm, available from CPAN. The
distribution and documentation include sample scripts.

<http://search.cpan.org/~gunnar/CGI-ContactForm-1.42/lib/CGI/ContactForm.
pm>

Use of this or other email scripts can depend upon the email facility
offered on your server. CGI::ContactForm depends upon Mail::Sender,
which may not be available, although if you can install modules, you
can install both.

If you can't install modules or don't want to write your own script,
look at the nms FormMail script (and others) available at
<http://nms-cgi.sourceforge.net/>
