All,
Perl newbie here. I am looking for help on how to send emails form
a Windows XP platform using Perl 5.8.8. I have tried different codes
and must be doing something wrong. Any thoughts or help would be
appreciated.

    There're lots of modules for sending mail on CPAN.like:

    Mail::Sender
    Email::Send
    MIME::Lite
    Net::SMTP
    ...

    which method do you use and what error message did you get?

    Yes including code and errors would have been more helpful on my
    part. I am attempting to use Mail::SendMail with the following code:

    #!C:\Perl\lib\mail

    use strict;
    use warnings;
    use Mail::SendMail;


    my %mail = ( To => 'ra4561@freescale.com',
    From => 'ra4561@freescale.com',
    Message => "test mail"
    );

    sendmail(%mail) or die $Mail::Sendmail::error;

    print "OK. Log says:\n", $Mail::Sendmail::log;

    __END__

    The error I am getting is:
    'undefined subroutine &main::sendmail called at C:perl\lib\mail
    \mail.pl line 13.

    As best I can tell this error is actually popping up from the
    sendmail.pm subroutine sub sendmail. But I could be mistaken.

    Case matters, even if you are on Windows.
    my %mail = ( To => 'ra4561@freescale.com',
    From => 'ra4561@freescale.com',
    Message => "test mail"

    You are; see my remark above.

    The module is named Mail::Sendmail ! Notice the lowercase "m" in the
    middle of "Sendmail". Perl is case sensitive even if the underlying
    filesystem is not. (I do wish Perl emited a warning in such cases.)

    Perl is able to find and load the ...\Mail\SendMail.pm (because the
    Windows filesystem doesn't care whether you ask it for Sendmail.pm,
    SendMail.pm or SENDMAIL.PM), but fails to initialize it properly ...
    it tries to initialize module Mail::SendMail, but there is only
    Mail::Sendmail in the file.
