Again, Axel, you didn't read the post. I stated that a lot of emails
were sent. I asked where to go to get information on how these things
are done so that I could fix my own script. In any case somebody on
another list pointed me to a site that explains the header injection
method of spamming. That is what I was looking for. If you have any
further information on how to perform header injection please post a reply.

Thanks,

I read your post - it did not include enough information.

Insufficient information. What type? Identical "From:" or "Subject:"?
Was "Cc:" or "Bcc:" used? Were the bodies identical or random gibberish?

That request is way to vague to be answered. Perhaps if you had
worded it as "how can I learn about security in web programming"
instead of "tell me how to fix my script" it would have gotten
better results.

Well, we could point you to general sites discussing considerations
on security when writing CGI programs, but that would not be
specific to your own script. Again, it is "general knowledge" versus
"fix it".

If you've seen on way, that pretty much covers it.
