Need Perl Programmer To Write Small Script For Ca$h!

I am looking for someone well-versed in Perl to write a small program which will help automate my page at http://www.koolemail.com/newsletters.html.

The page in question should capture the user’s email address and allow the user to subscribe to a variety of newsletters by sending his/her email address to the appropriate subscribe address[es].

i.e., ehopkins@pobox.com checks 5 checkboxes indicating his request to subscribe to 5 different newsletters. The program should then send a blank email from ehopkins@pobox.com to

list1-subscribe@listbot.com,
list2-subscribe@listbot.com,
list3-subscribe@listbot.com,
list4-subscribe@listbot.com, and
list5-subscribe@listbot.com.

I run some 40+ newsletters, so your code should take this into account and be prepared to send a blank email from a user to from 1-40 different email addresses.

Is this possible? Please let em know and perhaps we can discuss a fee for your services.

It does not look like a major project from what you describe.

Matt's Script Archive has a free Perl script called FormMail which has always worked well for me. You should easily be able to configure it to send a message with no body and 1-40 different email addresses in the To: or Cc: or Bcc: header.

For instance, in the arrangement you proposed, assign each checkbox to the "recipient" variable, and the script should automatically combine them in a comma-separated string. If not, it's an easy modification. I believe you'd need to replace all null (\0) characters with commas before sending the email.

Well actually we did this for the client so it really should be closed.  FormMail would not do the job without some fairly significant changes.
