I am not sure what goes where in this cgi script and help would be very much appreciated as it seems very complicated to me

Define Variables #
# Detailed Information Found In README File. #

# $mailprog defines the location of your sendmail program on your unix #
# system. The flags -i and -t should be passed to sendmail in order to #
# have it ignore single dots on a line and to read message for recipients #

$mailprog = '/usr/lib/sendmail -i -t';

# @referers allows forms to be located only on servers which are defined #
# in this field. This security fix from the last version which allowed #
# anyone on any server to use your FormMail script on their web site. #

@referers = ('scriptarchive.com','209.196.21.3'); What Goes Here ?? DO I change anything

# @recipients defines the e-mail addresses or domain names that e-mail can #
# be sent to. This must be filled in correctly to prevent SPAM and allow #
# valid addresses to receive e-mail. Read the documentation to find out how #
# this variable works!!! It is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. #
@recipients = &fill_recipients(@referers); soad@yahoo.12.com Is that right?

# ACCESS CONTROL FIX: Peter D. Thompson Yezek #
# @valid_ENV allows the sysadmin to define what environment variables can #
# be reported via the env_report directive. This was implemented to fix #
# the problem reported at http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/1187 # ???

@valid_ENV = ('REMOTE_HOST','REMOTE_ADDR','REMOTE_USER','HTTP_U SER_AGENT');

# Done #
################################################## ############################
&send_mail;

# Return HTML Page or Redirect User
&return_html;

# NOTE rev1.91: This function is no longer intended to stop abuse, that #
# functionality is now embedded in the checks made on @recipients and the #
# recipient form field.
