Macintosh form mail script?

I'm helping my brother who is hosting his own site on a Macintosh server. Simple question:

Is there a form mail script similar to Matt's free script formmail.pl for the Macintosh? Or what way can he bext handle form data scripting? Thanks!

powermixx,
have a look at MIME::Lite.

on your webserver do a man MIME::Lite
or go to http://www.cpan.org

This has a great email facility.  It allows you to specify what your email server is.

ie:

 ### Create a new multipart message:
           $msg = MIME::Lite->new(
                        From    =>'me@myhost.com',
                        To      =>'you@yourhost.com',
                        Cc      =>'some@other.com, some@more.com',
                        Subject =>'A message with 2 parts...',
                        Type    =>'multipart/mixed'
                        );
  ### Do something like this in your 'main':
           if ($I_DONT_HAVE_SENDMAIL) {
              MIME::Lite->send('smtp', "smtp.myisp.net", Timeout=>60);
           }
 
           ### Now this will do the right thing:
           $msg->send;         ### will now use Net::SMTP as shown above

i will look at this. But it's general practice here to submit a comment, then let the submiter close the question. When an answer is proposed (like this question is now), no other users may comment on it.

Thanks again. I'll take a look and reply...

powermixx,

also if you want to look at prewritten stuff, have a quick look at:
 http://cgi.resourceindex.com/Programs_and_Scripts/AppleScript/Form_Processing/

but i'd probably stick with MIME::Lite.
