[nycphp-talk] Preventing spam with php mail function

I have just joined this mailing list, and hope to attend the next meeting on
Tuesday.  I hope this question is not too rudimentary for this group.

Is there a widely-accepted solution to prevent spammers from exploiting the
php mail function (as forwarded from HTML forms, for instance)?  I have seen
several out there, but is there any particular approach that is considered
best?  The less elaborate, the better --I don't really need Pentagon level
security-- but right now there is nothing and the site owners are getting
swamped with spam.

I would appreciate any quick pointers you could offer.
