script isn't sending email to me

#!/usr/bin/perl -w
print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";


use CGI qw(:standard);

open(MAIL, "|/usr/sbin/sendmail -oi -t") or die "can't do sendmail: $!";
print MAIL <<eof;
From: mysite.com
To: me@ix.netcom.com
Subject: Someone submitted information via your form

[form info here]

eof
save_parameters(*MAIL);
close(MAIL) or die "can't close sendmail: $!";

print <<VERIFY;

Email sent.

*********************

I'm seeing "Email sent" in the browser, but I'm receiving no email.  No error messages.  I think I should see

From: mysite.com
To: me@ix.netcom.com
Subject: Someone submitted information via your form

[form info here]

Well the module must be installed therefor which is really easy if you have root access to the system:

> perl -MCPAN -e 'install MIME::Tools'

If you have no root access ask your system administrator to install this module for you if it is not already available. This module is very useful because it handles a lot of work in the background to provide a mail in correct/RFC-conforming format...

Does your server have Sendmail??

Yes, on my account page, my host posts the path to sendmail:
/usr/sbin/sendmail

Maybe the "-oi" should be "-i" in your sendmail call...

Other than this you can also use the MIME::Tools module like this:

---
use MIME::Entity;

my $address_string = 'me@ix.netcom.com';
my $recipient_address = 'you@is.netcom.com';
  # mysite.com is no valid email address !

my $data_string = <<eof;

[form info here]

eof

my $mail = MIME::Entity->build(
  'Encoding'     => 'quoted-printable',
  'From'         => $address_string,
  'To'           => [ $recipient_address ],
  'Subject'      => "Whatever your subject is",
  'Data'         => $data_string
);

open MAIL, "| /usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i" or die "open: $!";
$top->head->fold;
$top->print(\*MAIL);
close MAIL;

Hope that helps...Andy
