in reply to Sending Data

  • First off I want to make you aware of something that could possibly be abused in your logic.
    • I would like to send the info directly to that site or whoever so the user ticked when they signed up

    This sets your form up for possible abuse. Say I didn't like my coworker and I filed out the form a bunch of times with his address and checked the box. Next thing he knows he is getting spammed from everywhere. You should make sure that you have a database to compare with so the user doesn't get submitted multiple times. Or better yet, send a comfirmation email to the email address submitted and have the owner of the email address just reply, if they truely want the promotional emails

  • You also need to make sure that there is a very easy way for the users to be able to remove their name off the list.
In addition to the LWP and HTTP modules I could easily see doing some of this work with Net::Mail.

Please remember that no one likes spam!
