Using a contact form means that you do not need to display your email address on your website. Your email address is hidden and cannot be picked up by the automated 'crawlers' that search the internet for emails. There is a 'Captcha' question for the sender to complete in order to verify that a real person is filling in the form. The person submitting the form can state their own email address to receive a receipt/copy of their message (this is standard with the SOHO Webmaker contact forms). You can also include your email address in your SOHO receipt notification.
