perl project

This is an enquiry about a Perl project. I only want fixed price quotes.

The specification is get the Perl script below called [login to view URL] (complete file is attached/uploaded) working in my cgi-bin (my website is hosted by Zen), or to provide a similar one that does the same tasks. What it would do is download emails from the [login to view URL] IMAP website to my cgi-bin, and do one or two other tasks eg delete certain emails on the remote Yahoo site. (

Below is a sample script written by someone else for what I require, called It seems to do everything I want. The problem with it - I cannot get it to work. I can do basic programming in Javascrip and Perl, but my level in Perl is not enough to get this script to work. Therefore the specification is to get the sample script below working or one like it in my cgi-bin.

The script below reads INBOX emails from Yahoo emails off the yahoo server, then deletes them on the server, all using a single Perl script (as far as I can make out no extra libraries etc are required). I can vary this myself once the basic structure works, eg to make it read the 'SENT' folder in place of the 'INPUT' etc, and to choose whether or not to delete the remote emails. I just want it working in basic form. it does not need an elaborate interface, eg no need to write any html to call it, so I can call it using a URL address such as:

www....cgi-bin/[login to view URL]

Later, I can add more of an interface myself eg HTML/javascript to call it with different options, eg I could select the folder such as SENT or INBOX in HTML using a form. Initially I just require the basic version such as below to work.

It is important that the programmer for this project does not write any copyright messages in the script or claim any ownership or rights after the project, so I can use it however I want, without any restrictions.

I do not want it too elaborate or object-oriented, as I want to be able to understand and alter it, so it should be written in standard Perl5 similar to the style below.

my $socket = undef;

if( $mail_ssl ) {

# Check we connected

exit 1;


my $client = Mail::IMAPClient->new(

Socket => $socket,

User => $mail_username,

Password => $mail_password,

Timeout => 5,


# Check we have an imap client

if( ! defined( $client ) ) {

print STDERR "Could not initialize the imap client: $@\n";

exit 1;


# Check we are authenticated

if( $client->IsAuthenticated() ) {

# Select the INBOX folder

if( ! $client->select("INBOX") ) {

print STDERR "Could not select the INBOX: $@\n";

} else {

if( $client->message_count("INBOX") > 0) {

print "Processing " . $client->message_count("INBOX") . " messages....\n";

# We delete messages after processing so get all in the inbox

for( $client->search('ALL') ) {

print " ..." . $_ . "\n";

# Pull the RFC822 date out the message

my $date = $client->date( $_ );



.the rest is in attached file [login to view URL] due to 4000 word limit
