This must be a right of passage.
Formail, Blat,Nt4.0, IIS 4
1)script creates the file to be sent
2)I can manually blat the file from the command prompt
3)The script calls a bat file with the line
        exec("c:/blatit");
4)Tring to run the script from the web produces the following error:
         CGI Error
The specified CGI application misbehaved by not returning a complete set of HTTP headers. The headers it did return are:


C:\Inetpub\Domains\erpjobcenter>blat c:/message/temp/mailfile.txt -t dfarrell@dotnet-usa.com

I do not see you outputting any http-headers at all:

If you are sending html then you need just
print("Content-type: text/html\n\n");

If not html then something slightly different.  Basically you need a header to send and then a blank line to end the header.

I simplified the script to read:

#!/perl/bin
#send a file using blat
exec("c:/winnt/system32/blat c:/message/temp/mailfile.txt -t dfarrell\@dotnet-usa.com \n\n");

It returns this error:
CGI Error

Sending c:/message/temp/mailfile.txt to dfarrell@dotnet-usa.com
