    FormMail3-40.pl - SPAM

    I have been doing a lot of reading today about how to add functionality (blank form fields, captcha's, honeypot, etc) my brain is going to explode. Anyway, we have an HTML form that is using FormMail3-40.pl. Most of what I read is using PHP to control the form and how it handles the blank hidden field, etc. Is there an article/code examples or old school way of using HTML for the same purpose? Sorry if this has already been posted. I know there are a number of responses on the same subject on this forum, but most seem to point to PHP. Thanks!

    You need to use both html and server-side scripting (whether php or perl as in your case) to add features such as captchas/honeypots etc. It would be easy to bypass any protection that was html only.
