If you need an email send as a result of a cgi execution...  However it is a little
more involved to send an attached file.  But, the Mail::Sendmail module will do it.
Check the manual when you download the module.

Here's a CGI script that accepts, verifies, and uses an email address...
You should be able to adapt...

    #!/usr/bin/perl

    use CGI qw( :standard :html );
    use CGI::Carp qw( fatalsToBrowser );
    use Mail::CheckUser qw( check_email );
    use Mail::Sendmail;

    $REQUIRED="<img src=/images/reqd_flag.gif>";

    if ( param('displayed_once_already') ne "" ) {
     if ( ! check_email( param('email')) ) {
       $redo_email = "<br><font color=red> Please re-enter email address</font>";
     }
    }

    if ( ( param('email') eq "" ) || ( $redo_email ne "" ) ) {
     print header()
         . start_form()
         . hidden( 'displayed_once_already', 'true' )
         . "Enter your email address: "
         . textfield('email',"", 50), "$REQUIRED $redo_email\n"
         . submit("press to continue")
         . endform()
         . "$REQUIRED Required field"
         . end_html();
    }
    else {
     my %mail = (
         To => param('email'),
         From => "me\@mysite.com",
         CC => "me\@mysite.com",
         Subject => "I have received your email address",
         Message => "Thankyou for visiting mysite.com\n\nSincerely,\nMe");
     sendmail( %mail ) || die $Mail::SendMail::error;

    }
