    Tell-a-friend script Email Addresses in Textbox

    Anyone seen or heard of a tell-a-friend script where the referring person can load emails into a textbox. Even load up their outlook address list? A client is asking for it and it seems to me like it would be really prone to spam hijacking. Don't know. Anyone heard of this? I looked in forums and couldn't see anything like it.

    It seems like a pretty bad idea. It's just a bulk email sender, which is (more or less) a spam app.

    as i understand it, there's a liability you have worry about with any "tell a friend" email form.

    Indeed, but, from how I understand it, this one lets you send multiple email at once.

    It wouldn't be hard to code at all (with the exception of the outlook file), but I don't suggest you do it.
