You better be a god to make this e-mail script
Posted on 2004-07-31
Well.... maybe not a god. Here is what I need.
I have a web page at xyz.com that had a open area and a members area. I have e-mail forms in the open area but need something to 'nudge' the browser into coming to the members area instead of just spamming my contact form in the open area... catch all that?
Please make a script to do the following.
Lock down my contact form in the open area.. I wish that no more than 2 contacts be allowed per IP address per 24 hour period. If a access database needs to be constructed to track this info ... please construct the database.
I would also like a 3 to 5 UPPERCASE code to be presented to whoever is using the cantact form.. Ya know.. something like yahoo uses for their groups when you subscribe to verify that you are you and not some bot.
Track all e-mails... add all email addresses that are made though the contact form, search for duplicates, do not add if the "do not add to e-mail list" checkbox is tagged.
< removed by modulo>
That should do it... Now .. I have one more question. What are some of the programs these people are using to spam a contact form from a web page? Does anyone know?
