What is it?
A CGI mailing form that can verify from email addresses without revealing

page without worrying about people collecting your email. Also good for
mailing lists and other websites that want to replace all their mailto: links.

into a form.

- Optionally It can use Crypt::CBC, MIME::Base64 and one of the
Crypt:: ciphers if you want strong encryption.
It's just a perl script. No install required.

useful - if enough people do, maybe I'll submit it to Freshmeat.
