I use formmail.pl and some shtml forms to get user input before allowing them to download software. This is an attempt to get them to opt-in to our monthly newsletter (no spamming), The problem is that could enter any address and then be forwarded to the download page, I would like them to enter a correct email address that a download url gets sent to in order to ensure they enter a valid address.
How would I go about this?
I can't use a simle auto-responder because the email i receive from the submitted form is actually from our server, not the user, so any auto response would go to the server.
Lost here, any help?

post the portion of the script that sends the mail...
should be something like...
and ends with
I found a snippet to add to my formmail.pl that is supposed to do what i need, i will port again if it does not work.
