Anonymous users and InfoPath

  Asked By: Nisha    Date: Dec 06    Category: Sharepoint 2010    Views: 1131

Has anyone implemented InfoPath forms with anonymous users in ...SharePoint
2010? There are a number of posts about doing this in SharePoint 2007, but I
did not see anyone come up with a work-around in 2010.

Why would you want anon's to post to your SharePoint site?
It's a good wya to oveload your server with SPAM

I've had several clients with valid reasons for wanting to collect
information from anonymous users. Using InfoPath makes it possible to put
validation code in the form that would cut down on the amount of spam
produced. There are lots of reasons, it just isn't possible given the way
SharePoint does anonymous access.

You could add a CAPTCHA or similar human-verifiable test like math equations or
asking an obtuse question like, "What is the name of the guy on first base?"
