Use Mail::Transport::SMTP.

You will need to know the name or IP address of an SMTP server that you can use.  This will come from the ISP.

Use port 587, not 25.

Subject: [tpm] sending email from cgi on windows

My brother is moving a simple web site for someone, but while he is competent handling HTML, he doesn't program. I developed a simple CGI script to email the contents of the form .... not expected to be large volume, but it will be information that needs to be incorporated into the history being presented, along with pictures and such  files to be added. 

The script worked fine on my website and on my brother's, but arriving to the server actually being used, it's a windows machine ( so I changed the #! as instructed ); they won't let me do more that ftp up the file. They don't have sendmail. How can I send mail from a  windows machine using MIME-Lite, without having local sendmail. All mail will be going to one address.
