      BE VERY CAREFULL!!! Matt's FormMail is about as open (for abuse) as barndoor - even the newest version. Take a look at

      Matt's scripts can be used as a proxy relay by spammers!!!

      I'm not a Perl programmer myself - it's too obscure a language with to many pitfalls, so I have no idea wheter their scripts are better, but at least they're trying - like all the people that are looking after the FormMail-scripts on our servers! I made a little simple (secure? I should be!) FormMail spamtrap Perl-script, which will catch all the lusers that come anywhere near any of my servers!!!!!

      FormMail could (by a competent programmer) develop into doing both tasks: report abuse and do it's intended work!

      (Yes, I know I wrote the same thing in the other newsgroup dk.edb.internet.webdesign.html, but it's important that we close the holes, see: news ...)
