Do you have a Formmail Script that I can use?
FormMail is a script that has been very popular in the past, being bundled with products such as cPanel, the control panel we provide. However, FormMail is susceptible to exploitation by spammers. In recent times, a number of spammers have tried to send spam through user Formmail scripts on our servers. As you probably know, spam sent from a server can cause mail problems for ALL clients on that server, so it's extremely important that we take steps to eliminate this problem.

We recommend that if you need to use a formmail script to send emails through your website, that you use the nex formmail script, which is available from this site http://nms-cgi.sourceforge.net

The homepage for the nex script is quite informative and contains help files that will guide you through how to customise it.

If you aren't familiar with CGI scripts, we recommend the following PHP script at http://boaddrink.com/projects/files/index.php. This php script doesn't require permissions, and you simply upload it into your normal hosting space.

Windows Users: There are also a lot of free formmail scripts avaliable for windows hosting. Just google 'Windows Formmail Scripts'. This is also a script you can use http://www.brainjar.com/asp/formmail/

If you would like us to setup your website with a formmail script, please let us know, and we can provide you with a quote for carrying out this work.

Please note that these are a third party scripts, so we don't provide any support for them.
