Software: CGI - FormMail Clone

Overview

FormMail Clone is clone of Matt Wright's FormMail under a less restrictive license. It should behave almost exactly as FormMail.cgi, but it is completely written from scratch. There may be a few minor visual differences. Below are a few reasons you would want to use the FormMail Clone (taken directly from the FormMail Clone web site):

Steps
  1. You want to have a form that will be mailed to you, but aren't sure how to write the CGI script for it.
  2. You are the webmaster of your site and want to allow users to use forms, but not to have their own cgi-bin directories, which can cause security risks to your system. You can set this script up and then allow all users to run off of it.
  3. Want to have one script to parse all of your html forms and mail them to you.
