In an earlier entry on miniMail, I reported comments that it might be used to harvest email addresses or for some other unsavoury purpose.
The developer emails to say:
I can assure you that miniMail is not malicious in any way. Since the code is open source by nature, you are free to verify this yourself. However, it does make use of the PHP mail() function, and can be misused in unethical and damaging ways. We absolutely do not condone such usage. There?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s?Ç¬† a disclaimer in the widget package if you?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢re curious
P.S. ?¢‚Ç¨‚Äú This does have some interesting and legal uses, though?¢‚Ç¨‚Äúperfect for getting around web mail servers and stuff like that.
You could get it from the developer’s web site, although the link there is currently pointing to another product.
