So I'm making a contact us form for a site using PHP and was wondering if anyone had any input on what kind of info I can gather through the form.

I'm not thinking of anything extravagant like tracking sessions etc, but so far have just managed to come up with grabbing the user's IP, user agent and the referer.

Can anyone think of some more things I could collect 'behind the scenes'?

Thank you.

The php manual lists all the predefined $SERVER[] variables. A lot are dependent on the web-server running, but from my experience, both apache and IIS support all of them.
