    Question about FormMail


    I have a newbie question about the FormMail program. What are the security issues everyone seems to mention?

    Do a lot of web hosting companies ban it?

    What are some alternatives?

    Thanks for any help you can provide....

    Here's a good resource about the FormMail vulnerbilities:

    If you want a secure alternative to any of Matt Wright's scripts, use the nms scripts from http://nms-cgi.sourceforge.net
