A simple but secure PHP contact/email form with image validation (Captcha) for spam protection. A contact form is one of the basic requirements of a website. However, most free contact form scripts available are not secure and are prone to hijack (one can use your form to spam people) and automated submissions (contact form email spam using bots or software). Scary isn't it? It definitely is.
Using image validation (Captcha) eliminates (upto 99%) automated form submissions and form hijacking. This php contact/email form script is light and very easy to install. You can see a demo here.
Thank you so much for your patience throughout our correspondence. Because you offer a terrific and much-needed service that I wasn't able to find elsewhere (nor so affordably), Keep doing what you do for folks trying to cut spam and stay connected!

I went through 6 or 8 different forms before I found yours, and none worked. I am absolutely thrilled that yours actually worked, and was relatively easy to edit and upload.
You should be charging for it. Seriously. I’d be more than happy to send you a payment via PayPal. Just tell me what you think it is worth and what PayPal account to send it to and I will do it later today. Right now, it’s almost 7AM here and I need to sleep after working all night!

- PHP - 5.0 or greater
- GD and Freetype support in PHP
If you server does not support Sessions or GD/Freetype, you can use the non-captcha version which uses a random simple question (question/answer set can be easily modified) to check spam. Click here for a demo of non-captcha version.
