Emailmeform...

I know EmailMeForm for a couple of years. At some point, I created an account with them, to see what their services have to offer. At that time, it was one of the best contact form generators out there. But time has passed, and they are not doing well in this hard competition. Wufoo has a lot of new features, FormSite also, 123ContactForm announces a couple of new features every month. And EmailMeForm, who has a new layout and a new owner, remains with the same old features...
Quite disapointing, I would say...

  1. Be ware of using emailmeform!!!

    One of emailmeform owners, James Salganov, is a dishonest person. He purchased the website from Alexandru Marias, and sold it to Harrison Hung, without paying the money he was to pay to Alexandru Marias.
    The conflict between James Salganov ( past owner ) and Alexandru Marias ( developer of the service who has not been paid ) might affect the site badly, as there is a bigh trust issue in the middle

  3. We are happy to announce a new management team at EmailMeForm.com!

    EmailMeForm™ has long been a valued service that allows anybody to create functional web forms on any website. Unfortunately, the previous management had not invested in continual improvement to the EmailMeForm™ service throughout 2009. The lack of a solid working relationship between the past owner and the former head developer lead to a cold war that eventually forced the sale of the site to our dedicated hands.

    Not surprisingly, the relationship problems continue to spill over even after the service has already been transferred over to new hands. The new management cannot heal these old wounds. We are already pulling long hours to take EmailMeForm™ to the next level. Most of these improvements are not readily apparent to you as we are working on renovating the foundations of the EMF house.

    Regarding privacy issues and your form data: EMF will never abuse or sell this information to Third Parties. The previous owners, who may have copies of the database, are legally liable if this information is inappropriately used. Should an infraction occur, you can be assured that EmailMeForm™ will work toward a resolution.

    Happy Holidays and looking forward to 2010,

    EmailMeForm™ Team

  4. Hi,
    I am a EMF user, and received the below email. I am totally confused, which is the real EMF site? Is EMF trustable, or should I search for an alternate solution ?!?

    Received email:
    ====================================
    Dear Mike,

    As you know, the emailmeform business had some problems in the recent months. The business has been going through an acquisition process that was left uncompleted, the buyers are dishonest persons that worked together to grab the .com domain while avoiding to pay Alexandru Marias, the original owner and developer that provided this wonderful service to you for the past 3 years.

    The new owners attempted to grab the business, leaving the original owner out, and lying to the current customer database.
    As a result the emailmeform business is moving from .com to .net , because the emailmeform.com domain is locked by the new, non-technical and non-benevolent new owners, who are trying to lie to you about why you should stay with them, while non paying the old owner and inventor of emailmeform.

    While the new owners do not have a well understanding of how the site internally works, and do not know how to improve the service nor how to protect it from new vulnerabilities out there, Alexandru Marias knows well the inside and outside of the business and ensures that your forms will remain secure and well protected, while adding new features and functionalities.

    Your accounts and forms have been imported to emailmeform.net , however latest forms created have not been copied as the dishonest owners who grabbed emailmeform.com are disallowing access to the site.

    Please login to http://www.emailmeform.net with the current username and password, and get the updated code to add to your website. Please also cancel the old subscription on emailmeform.com , and signup for the new subscription on emailmeform.net . This will ensure that you stay with the original inventor and developer and with the original emailmeform business, benefiting of new features and ongoing security protection.

    Following this email, you might get an other newsletter from the dishonest owners of emailmeform.com who are trying to keep you on the old .com domain, lying about Alexandru Marias. The choise will be yours to make, but I would suggest to keep your emailmeform forms secure by using the .net domain provided by the old personal developer that you know and trust, instead of trusting them to the greedy non-technical croocks who grabbed the .com domain of the business

    Looking forward to hear from you!

    Alexandru Marias

  10. I too had an account with emailmeform, which was great. one of the best form processors however since the site was sold and the dramas I got tired of the problems, and moved on to a safer solution: www.formchamp.com . Very alike like emailmeform, cleaner works like a charm and has tons of new improvements added often. Support is very responsive and add feature requests quicly!
