Actually, I do.  Here is the relevant code:

my $fromAddress='rcrawford@unexmail.ucdavis.edu';
my $toAddress='rcrawford@unexmail.ucdavis.edu';
my $body="Neo is down as of $timeString\n";
my $mailer=open ({From => $fromAddress, To => toAddress, Subject=>$subject});
print $mailer $body;

> Also, look into sendmail's "-f" option.

How would I use that in my code?
