I am running an email spam filter and would like to ensure that
emails sent via the contact us form are not collected by the filter.
I need to know how to modify the form so that I can set the subject
of the emails and take the subject field out of the form.

If anyone knows how to do this, please let me know. I don't need
a complete 'walk through' but some details would help :)

i could be wrong here, but it looks like.....

change shopcustcontact.asp, in the SendMailToMerchant function:

the line:

just set that to whatever format you want the subject line to take (eg prefix it with a "safe-from-spam" bit of text that your spam filter might be able to check, for example:


(where xordernumber is your vpasp order number config value which nobody else will know)

this logic means that reardless of what the subject line is entered as, the emailing will always prefix the contact-us email subjects with that extra text.

Thanks! I changed the line to
my_subject="Customer Contact" & "-" & isubject
and set Customer Contact as a message subject never to be blocked and it works! I get the emails twice though, but I can live with that. Thanks again! I thought of doing something like that, but then decided it couldn't possibly be that simple :)
