    Question Question about FormMail

    I have a newbie question about the FormMail program. What's with all the talk about it's security? What are some alternatives? Do a lot of web hosting companies ban it?

    Thanks in advance!

    Greetings, Olle.

    Take a look at this page -- http://nms-cgi.sourceforge.net/

    The problem is that the scripts in Matt's Script Archive aren't very good. The scripts are well known amongst the Perl community to be badly written, buggy, and insecure. Anyone asking for support on Matt's scripts in any forum will be told in no uncertain terms that they shouldn't use his scripts.
    While these guys are not providing a clear answer what exactly is bad with Matt's formmail, they do provide a secure alternative that you can use:
