How do I get user's email adress? Can't Post

Hi. I'm using sendmail in a Perl script to send an email to a specified address. I would like the user to also be copied on this email so that they recieve a copy of the email they sent using the program.

Can sendmail be configured to send an email to the user's own email address without asking the user for that address? What code do I need to use in order to determine the user's email address?


Also, I'm using UNIX. So if sendmail can't determine a user's email address, does anyone know a way to do this?

if the users email address is available to your script, you can use the cc or bcc header to send the user an email. But sendmail has no way of determining email addresses, you have to tell it what email addresses to use.

If we are talking about windows and the user is logged into Active Directory, this will work:

use Win32::OLE;
$info = Win32::OLE->new("ADSystemInfo");
print "$email\n";
