Can't SendMail on NT Can't Post

I am using the following code to send mail using the SendMail module:


require "subparseform.lib";
print "Content-type:text/html\n\n";

open (MAIL, "|c:/perl/lib/SendMail -t") | |

print MAIL "To: dougj\ \nFrom: dougj\ \n";
print MAIL "Subject: A Test \n";
print MAIL "This is the message content \n";


When the script is ran a black screen flashes over the browser window and then this error:

"The name specified is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file."

Any help you could give me on this would be greatly appreciated. Doug

Did you download and install the NT version of sendmail? You can also look up using Blat or use SMTP. There are some servers out there that will let you send to their SMTP servers for no charge or a minimum charge.
