Is the PHP mail function enabled on shared hosting? I have existing scripts that send mail to myself only, and I like them the way they are. I don't like needing the -f flag either (envelope sender option).

It is enabled but would still fall under our mailing policy and limits found in our Terms of Service at http://www.mddhosting.com/tos.php

I read the TOS. Good stuff, and since I am only using mail() to send myself contact form submissions, I think I will be OK.

I was kind of surprised to see that ROKSO only has 121 known spammers.

I like the $75 + $75 per hour charge for cleaning up the IP after being blacklisted. Unfortunately, for a real spammer, that is probably pocket change (and probably not easily collected).

Thanks for the quick answer.
