FormMail

 

FormMail is a Perl script that e-mails the contents of completed Web-based forms to specific addresses. This script can be used by a Web site administrator to maintain records of form data entered and submitted by visitors to the site. In addition (or alternatively), data from completed forms can be sent to site visitors for their own records. The term FormMail also refers to the service provided by the use of this script.

FormMail does not cause advertisements to appear on Web pages. Filtering prevents the transmission of multiple e-mails resulting from entry of data into a single form. The form data can be sent to any e-mail address entered into the form, as well as other e-mail addresses specified by the Web site administrator. These addresses (except those entered by a site user) are not revealed to the user unless the Web administrator chooses to have this done.

FormMail is platform independent and can be downloaded for a free trial. Long-term subscriptions are available for a nominal monthly fee.
