You need to use some server side scripting (asp, perl) to do that. Post the form to that script, and handle it from there, that is, if you need to send the document as an attachment or with a certain mime-type.

With plain HTML you can only send plain text messages without attachment.

Yes, I'm sorry I didn't make it clear that I understood that. But what I am asking is using a PERL script, how do I post to another server? I guess this is more a PERL question.

One way to do it is to have the PERL script generate a page with the necessary form and a field with the text as its value. At the end of the  script add the following line:

print "<SCRIPT Language='JavaScript'>document.forms[0].submit()</SCRIPT>";

This will trigger the submit on the
form and POST to the other server.


Another way to do it is to add the LWP module to PERL. The LWP module adds some objects to PERL that allow it to do GET/POST operations (directly from DOS or a terminal, yet) and capture the results in a variable.
