Hi;
I enjoyed the article. I have been playing with the webserver in X and am trying to learn about using sendmail & cgi to process web forms (like a user could fill out a repair/maintenance request on a web page and it would be emailed to the appropriate department.)
Sendmail is rather...intimidating. I did manage to get it halfway working but I'm still confused about the Fully Qualified Domain Names and how it uses those,since I don't have a domain name myself.
Any and all info is useful-I look forward to the rest of the articles.

    Yes, how can all the pieces (sendmail, postgres, Apache, PHP, Python, Perl, MySQL) be made to play
    nicely together on OS X?

      It would be great if they could get an article together on using sendmail with Perl.

      I got so frustrated with sendmail, that I eventually used MacPerl to AppleScript to Eudora on Mac OS 9. This isn't too bad, but I'd much rather have it all run on Mac OS X.

      Perhaps another article on using OS X Perl with AppleScript?
