We have taken great care of usability and no compromise was made on security. After form submission, users will see a notification slide from the top of the screen in an unobtrusive way, so they get great feedback and confirmation of the message sent successfully. The form only supports the widely and generally supported PHP mail function , not SMTP.
Favourited items can be emailed for safekeeping or further reference, additionally, they are stored in lightweight and safe Cookies in the Visitors Browser until they delete browser cookies. No information is stored in the Joomla or ZOO database tables. ZOO Favourites leaves a very small footprint on your site and does not slow down your server or database in any way.
