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.
For anyone having spam problems please be sure you are running the latest version. As per our description above, the spam protection was greatly improved in December 2013 with built in captcha. We've had no reports of spam problems since this update.
I saw your reaction on a review stating that it is spam protected. This clearly isn't the case. Maybe it's because spammers found a way of bypassing this protection, but it turns out your spam protection isn't that reliable anymore.
However, let me say this. On my live site which is already hosted, the module works like a charm. It sends the email regardless of how many recipients I added, 3, 2, 1. One thing that I noticed, though, is the module works only on my home page, but on the other ones it comes up with 404 error. That's not a biggy, so I just have only on that page.
The module is ingeniously spam bot protected by a hidden input box that bots populate but not humans.
The email text that is sent out is easily configurable via the .php file.
Shape 5 has a support forum that is alive and well.
Great stuff guys, Thank you.
This means that ANYONE can access the html file used to send email
All that to say this module is spam protected.
