Formmail Error

I currently use a formmail script on numerous sites.

Lately on one of the sites I have heard people tellig me that once they submit the form they receive an error indicating "Illegal Execution Detected" - then if they use the browser back button and resubmit they say it works.

Any idea what could be causing something like this? I have tried the same form on 2 seperate computers and I have been unable to reproduce such an error?

Have you looked at the script source to see if that message is in it somewhere?

d but really didnt find in the coding a reason for the error. I wrote to the person who developed the script but never heard back. But I think I tracked down why the error was ocurring.

It only happened on specific computer which struck me as odd since I could never duplicate the error on my home or work computer but it heppened repeatedly with my wife at her work computer and a few other people on their home PCS.

In the script for the formmail I had 2 email addresses for the data to be send (sperated by commas) once I removed one of them and had it strictly sent to 1 email address the error stopped happening
