View Full Version : Send Mail cgi

January 29th, 2010, 12:14 AM
What do I need to install on an Ubuntu server running 8.04 x64 to use Mail::Sendmail? for a sendmail cgi perl script?

I've just moved a site from my freebie space on my ISP to my own VPS server and it's failing on the sendmail cgi script. Since I've not installed any mail system I'm guessing it's that but just not sure where to start.

Failing how? You can use the cpan shell to install Mail::Sendmail.

cpan install Mail::Sendmail

I'm asuming I will also need to setup some sort of simple mail server on the server though?

Failing how?

General 500 error. Since nothing has been setup for sendmail it's not surprising just wanted to know what I will need.

I don't want to have the hassle of maintaining a full mail server, so just want something that can send out.

Should have done a search, Doh!!

Looks like I need to install exim4 http://www.exim.org/
