Ok, so I have got Mac OS X which is UNIX based software I think. Well, I open up the terminal window and it looks just like a unix shell where I can view my whole hard drive. I use it to telnet into my shell account with my ISP.
Without telneting into another account, How do I set up the smtp server to send mail using mail. And can I receive mail using my ISP's pop mail account without telneting into my account?

Thanks for listening to my novice questions.

Mail::Mailer - Simple interface to electronic mailing mechanisms INHERITANCE
Mail::Mailer is a IO::Handle SYNOPSIS
use Mail::Mailer; use Mail::Mailer qw(mail); # specifies default mailer $mailer = Mail::Mailer->new; $mailer = Mail::Mailer->new($type, @args); $mailer->open(\%headers); print $mailer $body; $mailer->close or die "couldn't send whole message: $! "; DESCRIPTION
Sends mail using any of the built-in methods. As TYPE argument to new(), you can specify any of "sendmail" Use the "sendmail" program to deliver the mail. "smtp" Use the "smtp" protocol via Net::SMTP to deliver the mail. The server to use can be specified in @args with $mailer = Mail::Mailer->new('smtp', Server => $server); The smtp mailer does not handle "Cc" and "Bcc" lines, neither their "Resent-*" fellows. The "Debug" options enables debugging output from "Net::SMTP". You may also use the "Auth => [ $user, $password ]" option for SASL authentication. To make this work, you have to install the Authen::SASL distribution yourself: it is not automatically installed. "smtps" Use the smtp over ssl protocol via Net::SMTP::SSL to deliver the mail. Usage is identical to "smtp". You have to install Authen::SASL as well. $mailer = Mail::Mailer->new('smtps', Server => $server); "qmail" Use qmail's qmail-inject program to deliver the mail. "testfile" Used for debugging, this displays the data to the file named in $Mail::Mailer::testfile::config{outfile} which defaults to a file named "mailer.testfile". No mail is ever sent. "Mail::Mailer" will search for executables in the above order. The default mailer will be the first one found. METHODS
Constructors Mail::Mailer->new(TYPE, ARGS) The TYPE is one of the back-end sender implementations, as described in the DESCRIPTION chapter of this manual page. The ARGS are passed to that back-end. $obj->open(HASH) The HASH consists of key and value pairs, the key being the name of the header field (eg, "To"), and the value being the corresponding contents of the header field. The value can either be a scalar (eg, "") or a reference to an array of scalars ("eg, ['', '']"). DETAILS
ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES PERL_MAILERS Augments/override the build in choice for binary used to send out our mail messages. Format: "type1:mailbinary1;mailbinary2;...:type2:mailbinaryX;...:..." Example: assume you want you use private sendmail binary instead of mailx, one could set "PERL_MAILERS" to: "mail:/does/not/exists:sendmail:$HOME/test/bin/sendmail" On systems which may include ":" in file names, use "|" as separator between type-groups. "mail:c:/does/not/exists|sendmail:$HOME/test/bin/sendmail" BUGS Mail::Mailer does not help with folding, and does not protect against various web-script hacker attacks, for instance where a new-line is inserted in the content of the field.
