I am not a PHP progamer but I was asked if a PHP file form left to me on my site is secure as far as input being sent by submit button from end user to email? I was told my email is hidden and that seems to be true but can anyone view input?

The form is from http://formtoemail.com/FormToEmail.txt

PHP code is always hidden. So it's parsed by the browser, but all you see is its HTML output.

So no one can view your PHP code on your server.

I just got a reply for the same question from the form support FormToEmail.com where the form came from and he said:

If you are sending it over a secure connection (SSL - https://) yes.

I was happy with your reply but now I am confused?

It's secure anyways. I wouldn't worry about it - SSL is just extra security.
