Penguin Greetings implements Internet greeting cards by making them more like email. Cards are sent as multipart MIME email. The text of the card is included and the Reply-to field contains the card sender's email so recipients can reply to the card even with a text-only email client. The HTML for the cards and the creation screens are stored in templates so users can easily customize the program. Penguin Greetings incorporates Embperl so that full Perl expressions can be incorporated into templates for server-side processing. You can optionally restrict access to the card creation functions to users in an htpasswd file to avoid giving world wide access to your server. A separate daemon program carries out the emailing function and data storage, so you can mail cards on specific dates and improve security and logging.
