whoops -- looks like I read incorrectly. An SMTP threshold of 100/hr is more than sufficient for my site's needs.
As far as sendmail. I have the PERL script set for: /usr/sbin/sendmail -- but the result is when I test it as an end user is that the eMail to notify someone that an eCard is waiting for them is never delivered. Instead, I get an MAILER-DAEMON eMail sent to my default eMail account with DH that reads as follows:
==== COPY OF DREAMHOST MAILER-DAEMON ====

: No recipients specified
Perhaps this is more info than you needed .. but .. that's the result when I use sendmail instead of SMTP. And even though it states "no recipients specified" -- there was a recipient entered every time I tested. My script checks for a recipient and won't send it if one is missing. It all works fine with SMTP. So .. I'm kind of stumped what the fix is for this.
But -- Now that I am aware of the 100/hr threshold for SMTP, I think that will be the option I'll use for now.
I'm not a "real" programmer, I just pretend to be one on the Net, so any help is SUPER appreciated. =)
Thanks for replying,
