Im in desperate need of help, this script keeps throwing up a 500 error for me, and ive tried literally everything to get it working. Help would be much appreciated.

The script is FormMail by Matt Wright

Matt's script is not written very well. It would be best to replace it with the FormMail script from the NMS project, which is a drop-in replacement for Matt's script.

Oops, I forgot to give you the link.

But what's "everything"?

- chmodding it properly

- checking the file is saved in the correct format (i.e. the linebreaks/returns haven't been made inappropriate by saving it on one o.s. and then using it on a different one after ftping it - eg mac to pc, or anything and linux... it's a possibility)

- being sure that anything you've added (specific fields) has been done correctly and you haven't accidentally removed a " or something


I can't think of much else - what else did you do to try and solve the problem?

Have you thought of trying to put it together yourself - sending mail from cgi is very easy - no one really needs a readymade script...

here are some meccano parts for you -



$sendmailpath="/usr/sbin/sendmail";

open (SENDMAIL, "| $sendmailpath -t");




below there are also bits for sending attachments, but i didn't include the previous stuff for building up to it since you don't wanna get too confused too early




print SENDMAIL "Subject: $subject\n";
print SENDMAIL "From: $from\n";
print SENDMAIL "To: $to\n";
#print SENDMAIL "Cc: $cc\n";
print SENDMAIL "Bcc: $bcc\n";
print SENDMAIL "Mime-Version: 1.0\n";
print SENDMAIL "Content-Type: multipart/mixed; ";
print SENDMAIL "boundary=\"$BOUNDARY\"\n";
print SENDMAIL "\n\n";
print SENDMAIL "--$BOUNDARY\n";
print SENDMAIL "Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii\n";
print SENDMAIL "\n";
print SENDMAIL "$MSG\n$bmsg\n";
print SENDMAIL "--$BOUNDARY\n";
print SENDMAIL "Content-Type: $wotsit\n";
print SENDMAIL "Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64\n";
print SENDMAIL "\n";
# print SENDMAIL `$GZIP "$file"`;
# BASE64 Encode it and include it in the message
# print SENDMAIL `$MMENCODE "$file"`;
print SENDMAIL "$encodata";
print SENDMAIL "\n--$BOUNDARY--";







close (SENDMAIL);

I solved your problem, though:

$ perl jobby
Array found where operator expected at jobby line 47, at end of line
syntax error at jobby line 47, near "name@domain"
Execution of jobby aborted due to compilation errors.



so let's have a peek...
@recipients = &fill_recipients(name@domain.com);

is where it is going wrong

you need to solve that - i have no idea what any of it is doing anyway

it's apparently some newfangled anti-spam system, very basic.

who knows what you should be putting in there - but maybe the @ without any \ has something to do with it, or the lack of "s, who knows

if you put name@domain.com in "s it does actually work...


try it.
but the backslash idea was no good. just me shooting rounds off in the dark.

anyway there you go, i have solved it for you - put quotemarks around that email address (although perhaps changing it to your email first would be wise)
