I'd be interested in more details on this, from the pov of a person who
primarily knows php and only dabbled in perl, as I've never got anything to
work in Perl. Do I envisage a .pl file on the server, is there a reference
to this near the mail() php sending function etc... who does it tie
together. Can the mail be first sent with mail() or does it have to be sent
with a perl mail function? If the answer is too perl-intensive then reply
off-group but I think it is of interest to php beginners to know what the
alternatives are and how they might be dipped in and out of.
