Do you really need to use CGI? Do you have ASP or PHP ability on your server? That would be easier to use. If you have PHP, I would suggest doing a simple search for a php mailing script and there are dozens out there that are pretty easy to use.

Perl is a great language, but more difficult to learn than PHP. So Jeremy is correct ...
look for some PHP tutorials using Google - A search like this:
