as Bruce have pointed out your sendmail's path is probably incorrect; it is supposed to be smth like /usr/lib instead of /user/lib... it's /usr/sbin on my system. and your script dies because you are trying to execute it as a cgi script which requires special handling.. ie you have to print the http headers... try adding the following piece of code to your script

print "Content-type: text/plain\n\n";

you might wanna invest in a cgi book... i know that O'Reilly has one..

good luck.

p.s. since verio doesn't give you a shell access i would recommend installing a unix variant on one of your computers.
