[WindyCity-pm] Sending emails from perl.

I would like to send mail via a perl script. I find sendmail pretty overwhelming. So I was relieved when I found the the module Mail::Sendmail. I downloaded it, installed it and put in my yahoo SMTP server in the appropriate config file as SBC yahoo is my ISP. However, much to my dismay when I ran the test I got:
Server set to: smtp.bizmail.yahoo.com
MAIL FROM: error (530 authentication required - for help go to http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/bizmail/pop/pop-11.html)
!Error sending mail:
I didn't see any place to put my sbc-yahoo password. Worse, I found his cryptic sentence under LIMITATIONS of Mail::Sendmail:
"No support for the SMTP AUTH extension."
Does this mean I can't use Mail::Sendmail since my SMTP server requires authentication, or do I just not know where to put it?
Does anyone know of outgoing SMTP server that I can use that does not require authentication?
Is there an easier way to send emails from perl on linux?
Thanks in advance for any help.
