Unless next_page.php generates PHP, the script with this include will
only get HTML.

Nothing !.
I don't like it when my mailbox is overfilled with irrelevant mails.
I can't estimate how often this happens, but i'am aware of the risks using  
these forms
I'am a newbie using php, so i'am interested is secure solutions.
There are a lot of examples using a form, but not much about how to prevent  
I chose to use sessions :-))

The only way to not get spam is to not have an email box.  Sessions won't  
guarantee you don't get spammed, either!  I could very eaily write a program  
which would fill your email box - even with sessions.  However, it's not worth a  
spammer's time to spend several hours writing a custom script to spam a few  
email addresses.  In that same time the spammer can send millions of emails.

Of the dozens of email forms I've installed, I hear of only 3-4 abuses per year.  
  And these were done by people on browsers, not automated systems.

OTOH, I've seen a LOT of spam go to email addresses which are published on web  
pages and in newsgroups.  Even with the efforts I've taken, on some of my ID's I  
get > 1000 spams a week.  But these aren't because of form mails.

And BTW - my spam filters take out most of it.
