December 16, 2013 - A new version of this module is now out to address the following:
1. The spam protection has been greatly improved. The module now includes its own native captcha options, which replace the older spam methods of the module.
2. Mail functions are now sent via the default Joomla mail functions and not the module's own php mail() calls. This means the module will send mail based on the settings in the Joomla global configuration for better mail delivery.
November 21, 2009 - Updates:
We have a option which enables a spam box which asks the user to enter a spam protection code. If the code is entered incorrectly it will not submit the form. Also, the email address where the form is sent to remains null until the very end when all parameters are complete and it has passed all spam verifications; once it meets these requirements it then applies the email address that is entered in the backend of the module.
We have also added a params in the backend of the module where the administrator can enter "blocked words". If any of these words appear in the content of the email it will not be sent.
Please contact our support before reviewing a product. The spam code is not the same every time, it is a random code that is different on every page load. There are several forms used to block spam and if all else fails there are params in the backend of the module where the administrator can enter "blocked words". If any of these words appear in the content of the email it will not be sent.
The module's greatest drawback is the lack of spam protection. I have a relatively small site that receives approximately 15 spam emails per day and a larger site that receives over 40.
We do want everyone to know that in the last week we have made some updates to spam control by enabling a spam verification question to this module. Spam, as we know, is a very serious problem for many sites and this recent update will help protect even more again these spam emails.
