    A customer of mine was having problems pointing his form to /cgi-sys/formmail.cgi while /cgi-sys/FormMail.cgi works fine. I noticed that there is a symbolic link from formmail.cgi to FormMail.cgi, but Apache won't follow symbolic links in cgi directories (which is good IMHO).

    Anyway - shouldn't this be a copy of the script instead of a symblic link? Was this just an oversight?

    I removed the symbolic link and replaced it with a copy of FormMail.pl, but my formmail.pl was overwritten last night. I guess CPanel is smarter than me. ;)
