We have just experienced the nightmare that comes with using an unsecure form mailer script. Three of our domains had to be shut down due to massive SPAM returns and overload of SMTP servers.
We are now in the process of rewriting our Perl scripts using the downloads from NMS.
A quick question that might get me a bunch of negative votes, but what the hell...is it easier to secure email from a form using PERL or PHP? Please, this is not a PERL vs PHP, which is better, only which is easiest to secure.
