Thanks Nick. Might be difficult to find as good a script as
yours. I tried using the SMTP relay but got the following
error. I used the same address as the SMTP server I use for sending
mail. Does setting up a SMTP relay differ from the 'normal' SMTP
server as used in any mail client ?
An error has occurred in the program
connect to [smtp.aaisp.net.uk:25]: Invalid argument at (eval 8) line

It's no trivial job to make that change securely. I suggest you ask
ISP to point you to a secure formmail script that uses sendmail in
Alternatively, you could use an SMTP relay instead of sendmail, via
$mailprog = 'SMTP:....';
feature (see README).
