What is Mail-This-Page?
Mail-This-Page is a program written in Perl that gives visitors to a web page the ability to send copies of that page to any valid email address. The site owner simply inserts a small fill-out form into any webpage and he instantly gives viewers of that page the privilege to share the same content to anyone by sending a copy through email.

How does Mail-This-Page work?
MAIL-THIS-PAGE parses the contents of the HTML page that is going to be sent, strips out all of the HTML tags and unwanted portions of the page, re-arranges the text into a neat format, and sends the newly formatted text as part of an email body.

MAIL-THIS-PAGE is very easy to configure:

  • A small HTML code is inserted into any HTML page.
  • A few variables are assigned in the HTML code.
  • The site owner specifies which portion of the HTML page will be sent.
  • Configure the Perl script, and everything is set.

In order for Mail-This-Page to work properly, the following are required:

A web host server that:

  • runs a Unix operating system (eg: Linux);
  • allows CGI-BIN access;
  • has a Perl interpreter properly configured and installed;
  • has a Unix mail program (Sendmail or Qmail) properly configured and installed.
Furthermore, Mail-This-Page will only work with static HTML pages. Pages dynamically generated or created on-the-fly by another script/program will not work with Mail-This-Page. If your pages are dynamically-generated, please check out Mail-This-Page Pro.
