1) Make sure the CGI script is uploaded as ASCII and not BINARY
2) Make sure the file permission is set to 755
3) Make sure the path to SendMail is correct inside of the script. If you don't know the path to SendMail, ask your admin.

ASCII is a big one. When I first started playing around with Perl a few years ago (I think that was back in 1997!), it took me a week just to realise that I had to set my FTP program to ASCII mode.
