>I think formmail.pl will do all of this for you!

During the past week or so I've repeatedly had log entries showing someone
(from varying origins - all seemed to be faked) was trying to find out if I
had a /cgi-bin/formmail.pl on my server, which luckily I don't ;-)

I seem to remember reading a number of warnings that formmail.pl could
easily be exploited to relay SPAM mail. I'm notoriously bad at keeping my
bookmarks organized though :-|
