    This plugin for jQuery Google Maps is pretty easy to work with too. http://www.mayzes.org/googlemaps.jquery.html

      Shawn – Wow, I feel like I’m talking to myself :). Thanks for the link. I believe adding maps to the contact form is a nice little touch, especially for corporate and business sites.

    I really like Contact Form 7. The thing you didn’t mention is that you can add multiple forms, and insert them into your posts or pages using a simple tag.
    Also it’s very secure, and as you mentioned has captcha support which is great. I’ve been using it for over a year on multiple sites and never had a problem with it or gotten spam from it.
