PERL – How to Send Email

Here is a snippet of PERL code which you can use to send emails from your PERL scripts:

open (MAIL, "|/usr/sbin/sendmail -t ");
print MAIL "From: someFromAddress\@someFromDomain\n";
print MAIL "To: someToAddress\@someToDomain\n";
print MAIL "Content-Type: text/plain\n";
print MAIL "Subject: Very simple email test\n\n";
print MAIL "Body of the message";
close (MAIL);

Replace “someFromAddress\@someFromDomain” with an email address to be displayed in the “from” field of the email. It is important to not omit the backslash in front of the @ character in the email address. Similarly, replace “someToAddress\@someToDomain” with the email address to send the email to. Again don’t forget to escape the @ character in the email address by placing a backslash (\) in front of the @ sign. Also you’ll need to not leave off the “\n” you see in the to, from, and subject lines in the code.


Microsoft Outlook – Connect to more than one Exchange server

Update: Support for Outlook 2003 has been added to ExtraOutlook.

Currently this 3rd party application only works with Outlook 2007 but an Outlook 2003 version is being worked on by the developers. You can download the application from the Hammer of God Website.
