I'm trying to create a form where a visitor to my site can send a
message to anyone else in the world. Since the recipient's address is
unknown, I'm not sure how to configure the allow_mail_to portion of the
Is there any kind of "wildcard" feature in the syntax that would allow
me to set "@allow_mail_to" to send email to *any* address?
If not, what would be your recommendation?

FormMail is specifically designed NOT to be able to send e-mail to
