Hi,

2 questions...

1) How does script handle spambots?

2) when sending to more e-mail addresses, is it possible to tell the script to erase previous entered mails? That someone could not send mails to specific person over and over?

I'm little worried that someone could used such a nice module to send spam all over.

Hello Medy,

In reply to your questions...

1) This will be updated shortly. It will be updated to include a hidden input box.  On submit the form will be checked and if there is any input to the hidden text box the Tell A Friend script will not submit (as a spambot would be the only thing able to fill out a hidden input box).

2) This has been implemented and included in the current version available in the download section.

I will reply to this post as soon as the spam prevention has been included.

Regards,

The module has been updated and now includes some protection from spambots.

Hope this helps,
