Hello,

I have to redo my antediluvian forms and was wondering if Tectite is still the way to go or has something better come along?

Thank you.

PHPMailer  prevents header injection if that's what you mean.  And you can go the extra distance and add a Google reCAPTCHA which adds another layer of security to your forms.

Are they still around?  Haven't seen that one in a very long time.

According to their website, the FormMailer script has not received updates since 2009.   

Tectite FormMail Security

I think a better option (certainly more up to date) is PHPMailer library.

GitHub - PHPMailer/PHPMailer: The classic email sending library for PHP

By secure I meant the contents are not sent back in clear text easily read by a packet sniffer. I was already looking into adding reCaptcha.

Refer to HTML form encoding type.

HTML form enctype Attribute

If you need encryption of sensitive data, your form needs to be hosted on a server with SSL certs and HTTPS:// protocol.

Hmmm that is strange because a friend just pointed out their newest version is very recent "Our latest version is 9.15 (Released 2-December-2017)" https://www.tectite.com/formmailpage.php

On closer reading "2009" only refers to the last time a flaw was detected not the last time the software was updated.
