Yes, with the MIME::Lite module (very easy to install if you don't already have it).

See http://search.cpan.org/~yves/MIME-Lite-3.01/lib/MIME/Lite.pm

in all of the examples i see i see no reference to the sendmail path. can i infer i don't need sendmail?  i also see unix references but no confirmation that this works on a windows server.

The MIME::Lite module automatically determines the sendmail path.

If you are on a Windows server without sendmail (most likely), then you just specify a SMTP server.  Simple.
