i've heard that these cgi mail scripts can have security holes, e.g. matt's
formmail has been criticized a few times on discussion lists like this one

does anybody know of any that are reasonably safe to use?

and what is the problem with them, do they get taken over or misused by
spammers, expose your server to attack, or what exactly?
