    Default False Positive: The fields "zip" and "zip" contained duplicate data [M143]

    I am using your email script version 8.02 and have been having the customer complaining about false positive spam detection.

    As a result I have turned on notification and there is a copy of a notifacation below, so that I can see the reason for each spam alert.

    All are making sense to me except for one notice which I have copied below. I don’t understand the message about duplicate information in the fields “Zip” and “Zip”.

    I have looked at the form to make sure that I didn’t have duplicate fields by accident, and the only thing I have found is that the input field is name is zip and the id is zip.

    Other than that I can’t figure out why I would be getting the message below and if this is a false positive.

    Thank You for your help.

    Hi,

    Yes, this is a very strange thing to happen.

    On face value it would seem to be a bug in FormMail, but I think that's unlikely.

    I'll need to look closely at the form and run some tests on your server.

    You can send me access details using this secure form: https://secure.rootsoftware.com/~tectite/sendsecret.php

    Please make sure you tell me the URL of the form in question.
