There are alot of PHP email form scripts out there I really don't know the differences. But what is the "best" one with features and security? What feature and securities are available in an email form script? Also I don't want to get napped by spambots by displaying my email freely on the page code, not sure if there's a way around this. Thanks in advance for all the help and input.

What exactly do you like to see in your email script? Its possible to "write" or code a complete email client web based incl. the engine to send and receive email. "The best" email script is the one that is equiped with all the features your are looking for. Also consider the following,

Is everyone allowed to use that specific script?
What information would you like to be filled out in this script?
Can the script use mysql for anti spam functionality etc?
What information should be checked in depth? (whats the function of this contact form?)

Next to these basic questions there is allot more to consider when picking an email script...

regards,
phpmailer is the best one i ever used.
