oswulf has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Does anyone know of a ready-to-use script to back a contact form on a website that will send an Email via SMTP and which supports UTF-8?

NMA FormMail would appear to do this (it has a UTF-8 configuration setting and some associated code) but it simply doesn't work. Foreign language text arrives as gibberish. (And I'm not the only person to report this.)

I'd prefer not to have to write something myself given all the security considerations.
