Ahh - thanks I'd forgotten about that. I'll check that out later.

FWIW, I just made a script that runs on the "form host" which uses curl 
to post the POST vars to vtiger. I get a true or false result on that 
and am able to send a mail with the $_POST content.

One advantage I see is if there is a problem at the vtiger end, we will 
not necessarily lose the contents of the form submission this way. The 
POST vars are mailed to me on error too.

It's a bit quick and dirty but seems to work.
