$mailprog is defined early in the script (I don't remember if it is defined in smartcfg.cgi). It must be the full path to whatever mail program is on your server (sendmail for example). You must find it on your server and type in the proper path.

Then open(MAIL,"|$mailprog -t ") opens a connection to the mail program and writes the message to it. When you close(MAIL), the message is sent.

Hope this helps
