Uniform Mail Publisher's description
from James D H Turner
This Perl script can perform all the basic requirements of a form mail program.
Uniform Mail : Main Features
* It is platform independent. The unix sendmail program is not required. Instead, it uses the smtp module that is standard to modern distributions of Perl.
It has been tested on Windows 2000 and XP systems as well as Unix servers.
* It is secure. One potential problem of form-mailers is that they can be hijacked by spammers to send unsolicited mail. When configured correctly, Uniform Mail cannot be usefully hijacked.
* It is powerful and flexible.
Many configuration parameters can be specified by url as well as by file.
* A comprehensive diagnostic mode should enable you to quickly discover the cause of any problems during testing/configuration.
* The format of the result page can be adjusted using the file uniformmail.css.
* Copies can be sent to any number of additional recipients. No additional email forwarding is required.
* Ticket numbers can be generated automatically and placed in the subject line.
New (V 2.0)
* Most configuration parameters can be specified indirectly using (hidden) data fields in the form.
* The result page can be injected into another static html page.
* The perl script can validate data using regular expressions.
* A receipt can be sent.
What Uniform Mail cannot do
* It is not a webmail program. It cannot be used to read emails.
* It is not a bulk emailer. It does not support contact or mailing lists.
* It cannot generate html forms. These must be created as common html pages.

* Also see authentication.
