Processing mail form on W2K
we have a W2K server running and want to process a mail form into an email. Unfortunately our server doesn´t execute .cgi as cgi, it simply shows the contents of the files.
Although Perl is installed at W:/perl/bin/perl.exe. Does anyone have an idea, what is wrong with this installation or tell us an asp-script that processes forms and uses templates?

Does that directory have execute enabled on it?

Do you mean the directory where perl lies?

Are you saying that your perl scripts have a .cgi extension and not a .pl extension?

Don't know if this helps but...
I'd check to see if your file extensions are set up correctly.
I'm guessing you installed ActivePerl? Here's the document I sent my server admin to help him get it up and running.
Also I was looking for a e-mail application on Windows 2000, and found one called Blat.exe. It's a command-line SMTP e-mail application that works like mail on UNIX. You can find it through shareware.com.
Don't know if that helps at all, but hey saying something is better than nothing!

the perl scripts have both .cgi and .pl extensions.
